A very warm welcome to Stagecoach Ascot where we provide quality part-time training in the performing arts for children aged 4-18yrs. Our School aim is to nurture and develop young potential through singing, dancing and acting classes.

Holiday Workshops 2019

We are taking enrolments for our 2 day October Half-term Halloween inspired workshop: 'Trick or Treat!'. Our workshops are suitable for children 6 - 18 years of age & no experience is necessary! Your child will make lots of new friends, enhance their team building & performing skills & play their part in creating original musical theatre!

Our students shone!

Congratulations to the cast of our 5 day workshop musical "Shine Bright Like a Diamond!" and our 3 day workshop "Shadowed Lands" this Summer holiday! Emily and the team were blown away by all of our students dedication, passion and talent - two terrific performances and hugely successful and enjoyable weeks!

Autumn 2019 Term!

This Autumn term all of our Main Stages and Further Stages students will work towards Group Musical Theatre Exams. Our students will create unique performances inspired by 'Toy Story', 'Matilda', 'School of Rock' and 'Come From Away' to be assessed at the end of term.

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

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)

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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.
