Learn by playing

Magic is an amazing tool. It gives young people confidence and develops soft skills, unlocking potential. Eyes light up, jaws drop and the new magicians can’t wait to show off their skills! Creative and critical thinking happens during our workshops. The students wonder how to develop a trick, they’re thinking on their feet. And with that, you ignite their imagination and excitement.

Our workshops:

The Magic of Communication

The power of effective communication is incredible.

We share the contents of the Magician’s Toolbox, empowering students to become confident communicators and empathetic listeners.

This workshop sets GCSE students up for success in their Speaking and Listening assessments, as well as engendering competence beyond the classroom.

All workshops are available as full-days; or as a series of weekly 1-2 hr sessions over 4-6 weeks.

Magical You

Resilience allows us to thrive. It's a necessary skill in order to be an independent learner.

We create a safe environment where students can experiment with failure, exploring how to manage challenges and build resilience. We use magic to foster a growth mindset, encouraging students to take risks and embrace failure as a learning opportunity.

As well as developing important life skills, this workshop sets students up for academic success.

Inner Magic

Safeguarding mental wellbeing is fundamental to the PSHE curriculum and forms the basis of a holistic education for young people.

Our experienced Magilitators (Magician - Facilitators) help students explore stress and anxiety. Through a series of activities designed to boost confidence, we provide coping strategies and enable students to see failure as a learning opportunity.
