Stagecoach Chelmsford

Welcome to Stagecoach Chelmsford!

We are currently enrolling students for our Autumn Term, which runs from September; please book early, as we have very limited places available.

Our aim is to nurture and develop young potential and confidence, through singing, acting and dance classes for kids.

At Stagecoach Chelmsford we stretch young imaginations, building confidence and communication skills...while having FUN! We provide a warm, family friendly environment where EVERY child matters; in our presentations, no one gets lost in a sea of faces and all children have speaking roles. We look forward to hearing from you.

Your child is in safe hands. All of our Team are Enhanced DBS checked.


It's showtime!

This term, which commences on January 4th/5th, all of our students will be working towards a fully costumed show. There will be speaking roles for everyone, with songs and dances galore!

Arts Awards success!

Congratulations to all of our students who took a Performance Arts Award Exam. Yet again, we have a 100% pass rate, with a great many of our students now achieving Grade 6, 7 and 8; the equivalent of a GCSE or 'A' Level, all carry those valuable UCAS points. Well done everyone, we are proud of you!

Inspection 2019

Our recent inspection gave us a brilliant “Exceeds expectations" in all areas! The inspector praised the quality of the teaching, progress of the students, inclusion of students with SEN and "warm and welcoming environment".


In July 2019, some of our Stagecoach students and their families travelled to Disneyland Paris for an unforgettable experience. They performed in the Pre-parade and opened the Disney park by performing in front of Cinderella's Castle. A truly magical trip!

Stand out performances!

A huge congratulations to all our students who took part in our recent productions of "The Wizard of Oz" in the Civic Theatre. You all delivered stand out performances and we are very proud of you.

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.
