Principal Valerie Weyland

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



We are beyond excited to lift the curtain to our show term with the show on June 25th and 26th. Small, safe classes for individual attention. Let’s get these children off their devices and social media and enjoy inspirational and brilliant classes where they talk to each other and end with a performance onstage at a theatre!


We have performed at West End theatres- Shaftesbury, Adelphi and Her Majesty’s Theatre. Our students have performed in front of thousands in outstanding pieces such as Hairspray, Footloose and Addam’s Family! Dream big!


Our early stages teacher was described in our latest inspection report as 'a Pied Piper who the little ones simply adore and follow her lead'. She is funny, positive and caring. Come and follow our lovely Pied Piper, Amy!


Students can attend seven private lessons with LAMDA tutor Luke Fredericks and are entered at the famous acting college to perform their monologues for an examiner. Luke's last five students achieved Disticntion. Bronze medal onwards goes towards UCAS points and stands out on a CV and any school, college or university application.


We offer a two week trial so the children and teens can see what we're all about! We charge a small deposit but don't worry, it's taken off the fees if you stay on! What have you got to lose? Go for it!

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!
