Workshop Structure

Infant and primary school circus skills workshop

Full school day, individual classes

For Infant and Primary schools, during a morning assembly, your tutor will present the skills that the pupils will be later learning in a fun and exciting demonstration. For Secondary schools we recommend starting straight into the lessons to maximise teaching time with more complex equipment and tricks.

The workshops commence timetabled to suit the number of classes required during the day. There can be a maximum of 7 workshops with no more than 35 pupils per workshop in a full school day. It is essential that one school teacher remain with the group during their workshop.

The workshops will be taught a year group class at a time. We can provide age suitable workshops from nursery right up to year 13. Classes 30-45 minutes in duration are adequate for the youngest year groups with an hour plus being suitable for years 2 upwards. The longer the session times, the more skills and tricks we can teach!

If your school has more classes than will fit into one day we are happy to provide discounted full or half days so that no one misses out!

Full school day, intensive class with finale show

A full day with one or two groups, up to 35 in number each. Session breaks fit around your schools timetable cumulating in a performance by the group at the end of the day for their peers and/or families. If a show isn’t required we’ll focus more time on teaching extra tricks.

During the lessons the pupils will receive intensive tuition on each piece of age appropriate equipment. They will have time to develop their skills with each. They will learn presentation skills and how to work together in groups to create a show.

Your tutor will help them structure the performance and will also act as compere for the show, helping create a fun circus show atmosphere for the audience. This format is only suitable for years 2 upwards.

Drop in Workshop

This is suitable for school fetes and fun days or an after school activity. Your tutor will bring and set up a selection of equipment in a designated area. Children and parents are then able to come in and have a go with the equipment.

Tuition is not structured but will be given as is needed on a one to one basis with participants free to wander in and out.
