Stagecoach Durham

I have been principal of Stagecoach Durham for twelve years.

I retired in 2002 as Head of PE and Dance at Oxclose Community School in Washington where I taught for 17 years.

I have taught PE and Dance to GCSE level for many years and have directed and choreographed many school productions. 

There are 3 distinct terms per year. One concentrating on performance, another where the emphasis is on building up techniques and skills and a third 'in house' term where children are given the opportunity to be more creative

Stagecoach Durham is proud to offer a full and rounded education, teaching life skills to build confidence and stretch imaginations through singing, acting and dance classes

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)
