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 have taken part. Evelyn Community Primary School in Prescot, 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.

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, including an incredible mindreading effect, 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. They also demonstrate professional-looking card displays which often produces audible gasps from the audience.

Magic Skills For Schools delivers high impact in just a few weeks, and the cost per pupil is classed 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.
