About us

The Sexual Health Circus is a new ‘circus in education’ show and project enhancing young people’s experience of sexual health education through the engaging media of circus!

After the show the students are invited to take part in an anonymous question and answer session.

Post-show Sex and Relationship Education (RSE) lesson plans are then delivered by PSHE teachers to further unpick the sexual health topics from the show.

Our Mission

Our purpose is to improve young people's sexual health and wellbeing through the engaging and interactive medium of education through circus. We believe as a result of accessing high quality and modern sex education through circus every young person can make positive and informed choices for their own sexual health and future.

How does it work?

The Sexual Health Circus Show is designed to be shown to one year group at a time. From the pilot project we have deduced that the show is most suitable for years 9-12.

Relationship and Sex Education topics covered in the show:

  • Gender
  • Sexuality
  • Contraception
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections
  • Consent
  • Healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • Pornography
  • Nudes (Sexting)
  • Pleasure

We come to your school and require a hall with enough space for seats for one year group and five metres ceiling clearance for an aerial rig. We set up our stage and perform the 50-minute show to one year group at a time.

After the show we make time for an all-important anonymous question and answer session in order to fill in any gaps in the student's knowledge that have arisen from watching the show. Students often also ask us questions about being circus performers and making the show, as well as about sexual health education.

Three follow-up Relationship and Sex Education lesson plans are given to the PSHE teachers at the school to deliver to the students. These lesson plans are in line with the new RSE curriculum and cover the following topics:

  • Healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • Consent
  • Pornography
  • Nudes (Sexting)
  • Gender
  • Sexuality
  • Pleasure
