Educational visits and workshops

Working with young people and schools

Circus provides a unique experience to engage students and enrich their learning.

The circus arts can be effectively integrated into the National Curriculum in a number of ways, linking with PE, dance and drama as well as other subjects such as citizenship and science, for example through exploring the physics of circus.

We have developed a number of ways for school groups to access the circus arts, both physically and non-physically.
