Stagecoach Brentwood

A warm welcome to our Brentwood school website, here you will find everything you need to know about our Brentwood School. This is where we provide quality part-time training in the performing arts for children aged 4-18yrs.  Our aim is to nurture and develop young people’s potential through singing, acting and dance classes. The classes, based in Hutton, will stretch young imaginations and help to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and fun. You will get the opportunity to act, sing and dance in a friendly and fun environment. We have specific goals each term, working towards an end of term concert, Performance Arts Awards and LAMDA exams or our Summer Showcase in a local professional theatre.
Part of the Stagecoach South East Essex group of Schools, we are open every Saturday morning, during term time, why not come and join the fun!

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)

Tessa has worked in the Performing Arts for most of her life. She has performed a number of character roles and has worked as a member of the chorus. She has also directed many productions for various Amateur Companies, including children in Grease, The Wiz, The Likes Of Us, Cinderella and Puss In Boots.
