Stagecoach Beckenham

Jill is a former primary school teacher and has spent all her life working with children in education. Stagecoach Beckenham therefore has a principal with a wealth of experience under her belt and her 13 years experience working for another Stagecoach means her school is thriving. We pride ourselves on offering a safe environment where children can receive quality training in acting, dancing and singing. We welcome new students of all ages and abilities. Many children join us with no previous experience and all we ask is that they are enthusiastic and keen to learn. We teach students to act, dance and sing and then watch as they become more confident, poised and self-assured. These are skills for life!

We offer Performing Arts Exams

Parents Do Stagecoach

On the 11th November we invited parents in to do Stagecoach with us. The parents who joined us had a wonderful time as can be seen by some of the following comments. " The teachers were fantastic - very energetic and creative. I can see why Iola enjoys it so much" Victoria Stewart

"Thank you for allowing us to see what Chloe gets up to each week. she was so excited to have me there. She really enjoyed showing off her dancing and teaching me the games they play. Casey and Amy are so lovely with the children. Stagecoach has done wonders for Chloe's confidence and now I see why she loves it so much!"

"We really love the parents' day at Stagecoach. It was a wonderful experience to see how our kids are taught. The teachers are amazing and so creative . I can already see the difference in my child and the confidence he has gained overall. We will definitely continue with Stagecoach and highly recommend it."

"It was very good to experience what the children are doing every Saturday. It gave me the opportunity to find out the various skills they are learning. It also enabled me to see how professional and talented the teachers are. Now I know why both my daughters love Stagecoach so much. I had so much fun and wish Stagecoach was for grown-ups as well"

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)

Meet The Team

Principal - Jill Schaverien

Did you know I joined Stagecoach in 1993 and have successfully run four other Stagecoach schools including 13 years at Wimbledon? I "retired" for 2 years before being asked to come back to rescue Beckenham and unbelievably have now been there six years.
I took over Stagecoach Beckenham three years ago and have since added a Saturday afternoon school. I have a passion for Stagecoach and the performing arts and am looking forward to another exciting term.
