"The impact on children has been vast. Teachers and parents reported huge increases in children’s level of confidence and in their sense of self worth. Working with Circus Central has left a lasting legacy in our school. It was an exciting and exhilarating time, rooted in strong teaching and learning and something we shall never forget!"
"Wow...what a brilliant week we had with the amazing staff at Circus Central, children and young people giving every activity a go and being really brave and trying new things. Really awesome place to go! Amazing staff too!"
"They have a clear commitment to being inclusive and accessible to all AND a capacity to offer a bespoke and adaptive programme with appropriate extra support when needed."
"Circus Central is a very accepting place and I feel has taught the kids to embrace difference rather than having to conform to a stereotype. This has allowed them all as individuals to flourish."
"During lockdown the daily Zoom classes were absolutely brilliant, a life line for physical and social engagement. Thank you Circus Central for all the time and heartfelt dedication and brilliant inspiring practice."
"The BTEC was my raft. It helped me connect with people, built my confidence and helped me challenge myself, and brought me into a community that accepted me. It rebuilt me on a personal level, and that allowed me to thrive professionally."
