Stagecoach Ampthill

A huge welcome to the new Stagecoach Ampthill! We believe the whole world is a stage and that the skills children learn at Stagecoach Ampthill will help them at school, university and in their future careers. We are passionate about teaching children all three performing arts disciplines: singing, dancing and acting. Each helps develop invaluable life-skills to draw upon as they grow up: confidence, self-esteem, physical awareness, resilience; true Creative Courage for Life.

Safety First!

We're ensuring our school environment is as safe as possible for our students and staff, with student temperatures being taken as they arrive, social distancing in classes, hand washing for all students before/after each class and all rooms being cleaned between each class.

Parent Feedback

"I can’t express enough how much you have literally unlocked something in my daughter. She has found her tribe and her confidence and subsequently has a light on in her which is incredible to see." "Thank you for everything you do. Stagecoach has been the highlight of his week since his very first day with you. Keep doing what you're doing!"

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
Early Stages classes run alongside the main Stagecoach schools, where young people learn skills in each of the three Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama, so it is an easy step when it is time to transfer to the next stage.

(90 minutes each week)

Main Stages (for ages 6-18 yrs)

Stagecoach Main Stages
Main Stages classes are split in three age appropriate groups, where young people learn new skills in each of the complementary Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama. We nurture the shy and apprehensive, until they find their feet and voice, whilst at the same time developing and channelling those with bundles of talent, confidence and energy. We believe in the potential of every child!

(3 hrs each week)

Meet The Team

Principal - Richard Chatterley

Richard is a passionate believer in the benefits Stagecoach training provides children and is one of our biggest advocates for Creative Courage for Life. Having been plucked from the audience to first appear on stage at the London Palladium in the musical Barnum back in 1982, he went on to tread the boards throughout his formative years and attributes much of his success in adult life to the confidence and skills learnt during this time. For the last 10 years or so, Richard has since enjoyed performing with his trusty guitar at music festivals in the summer months.

Coming from a true Stagecoach family (his wife, Tracey, is Principal of Stagecoach Leighton Buzzard and both children, Nathaniel, 11 and Alexandra, 9, are avid Stagecoach students) he has seen first-hand the positive impact Stagecoach has on children from running Stagecoach Aylesbury for the last year and is proud to be writing the current chapter of the Stagecoach Ampthill story.
