Magic Does The Trick For Classroom Confidence

Established in 2008, Magic Skills For Schools is a high-quality developmental programme for children in Years 4, 5 & 6. The programme was designed by Robert Newgrosh who is an award-winning trainer and performing magician.

Since inception, hundreds of children from 18 schools across the North-West have taken part. One school, judged Outstanding by OFSTED on three occasions, has run the programme seven times.

Magic Skills For Schools boosts confidence, self-esteem and social skills. In addition, it develops manual dexterity, co-ordination, memory, presentation, reasoning, numeracy and verbal skills. Magic increases a child's self-belief because once they can do something that's really amazing, it has the potential to change their whole outlook. Children are highly motivated to participate, and really enjoy taking part.

All the tricks in the programme are very high calibre - easy enough for a child to learn but good enough to entertain and amaze family & friends. Based on professional card magic, the methods and secrets taught ensure the children can perform confidently knowing they won't be caught out.

At the end of the programme the children perform a show for classmates and parents, further boosting their confidence and self-esteem. The show provides a tangible end-result plus a real sense of achievement.

The programme has recently started running in special schools and has been of benefit to children with ADHD, autism, dyslexia and behavioural & emotional problems.

Magic Skills For Schools delivers high impact in just a few weeks, and the cost per pupil is classified as "very low" by the Education Endowment Foundation. Outcomes are well-matched to the Government's concept of a "targeted enrichment activity" making the programme ideal for Pupil Premium investment.
