Circus for Schools

Circus For



Circus Factory aims to use the teaching and learning of circus skills as an innovative educational tool that challenges young people in a creative and non-competitive environment.

Using the key principles of Social Circus, our primary focus is that students have fun in our workshops and can therefore more easily gain further benefits of taking part in circus such as: learning to take risks, perseverance, physical activity, imagination, self-expression and trust in others.

Who it is for

Circus for School is suitable for all ages with variations on activities offered to suit the age and ability. We have developed bespoke programmes for Transition Year students and can deliver longer programmes that fit into the Transition Year learning modules.

What We Offer

We offer fun activities such as Juggling and Hula Hoop plus additional activities depending on the size and nature of the class area.

These can be as simple or as skilled as the participant is willing to try. Our classes improve hand to eye coordination, promote physical activity in a fun non competitive environment and can help to improve concentration and focus.

We encourage group activity, participation and promote progressive learning and the confidence to try out new things. We can offer single introduction classes to longer term weekly programmes.

  • Boherbue NS, Boherbue - Creative Schools 2021
