Circus In Schools
Since the new millennium, Let’s Circus directors have been creating educational projects in schools using the excitement of circus as a hook for dynamic, creative learning experiences. From a simple toy box workshop to an entire tented residency – we cover all scales.
Let’s Circus delivers a 100% memorable educational experience for students, teachers, parents and the wider community. Our projects provide a full immersion experience and bring a dynamic, engaging, creative programme to schools.
We also supply equipment packages to schools for ongoing circus activities within school times.
As well as being circus artists and educators we have specialists in cross curricular areas such as Graphic Design, Visual Arts, Circus History including WW1, Sciences and Geology. Thus we are able to tailor or offer activities to suit the award level, as well as expanding on the curriculum.
Added to the work we do in schools for fun and celebration we have experienced Arts Awards advisors, to Gold level, as part of our team. They assist young people and children gaining a qualification both within and outwith of formal education settings
Let’s Circus can help young people gain all of or elements of their Arts Awards. :
