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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Stagecoach Further Stages
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.

Meet The Team

Principal - Sally Catlin - BA Hons

A keen performer since her childhood, Sally performed in several musical stage productions and went on to study Drama at St Mary's University, where she gained her BA Hons Degree, majoring in Film and TV. She also did a year's psychology course as well as 3 years of Sociology.

Following a year out au pairing in Paris, she decided to explore other avenues and went on to work in the business side of media, initially at a top London advertising agency and later at some of the world's most renowned publishing and events houses. 

In 1998, having taken a year out to travel and keen to change direction back to her roots in performing, the idea of buying her own Stagecoach school and developing it seemed perfect. She opened her first school in 2000 with her sister, whilst still working in Event Sales & Marketing and two years later opened more schools. They now run 8 Main Schools and 13 Early Stages across Chiswick, Kensington and Hammersmith. 

Sally's own children have attended Stagecoach since they were 3 years old and she is convinced this has helped their overall progress both in their academic work as well as performers. She is passionate about children's development and is supportive of all her students as well as many of their parents.
