Home Schooling Rochdale

A catch up with Charma Force, Circus Trainer at Skylight Circus Arts


Why did Skylight Circus start a Home Education Group?

Demand!  Over a short period, we were inundated with enquiries about circus classes for home educated children in Rochdale Borough.


Who are the circus classes for?

We welcome children from 7yrs to 16rs who are not in mainstream education and may have additional needs.

Home Schooling Circus

What are the benefits of the Home Education circus class?

The group really enjoy getting to know other young people who are home educated.  The sessions are relaxed, social and fun! It’s creative and also great exercise, helping with balance and coordination.



What can my child learn in the Home Education Class?

We teach different skills each week.  Skills include juggling, diablo, flower sticks, trapeze, stilts, tightrope and globe.  We also play some great games in each session.


What do you enjoy about leading the circus sessions?

I really enjoy teaching the Home Education Class because every child is very enthusiastic and open to trying new things.  It’s great to see the group make friends and learn to work as a team. The sessions are fun and always full of laughter!


Can my child perform in a show?

The Home Education Class will be encouraged to perform at our Christmas Showback on Friday 13 December 2019.  It’s going to be a fantastic night featuring performances from other Skylight Groups.


How do I book a Home Education Class?

Our next 7 week block starts on Monday 28th October.  The cost is £35 with sessions on Monday’s 1.00 to 2.30pm at Skylight Circus Arts, St Chad’s Fold, Rochdale. To secure a place please go to https://skylighthomeeducation.eventbrite.co.uk
