Stagecoach Fareham

A very warm welcome to Stagecoach Fareham, where, as a school we are focussed on giving children a rounded education in performing arts using the three main disciplines of theatre. Taking classes in singing, dance and drama has been proven to build a child's self-esteem. At Stagecoach Fareham we pride ourselves on building the confidence of each child as they develop at their own pace. Stagecoach provides our students with the building blocks to flourish in a safe, friendly environment where children can learn, develop their skills for life but most of all have fun. The fact that some of our students have been with us for over a decade is a testament to such an environment. Past students of ours have had amazing opportunities and have performed in professional shows such as ‘Annie’, ‘Oliver’ and ‘The King and I’ and as they have flown the nest, a number have furthered their careers and gone on to study at prestigious schools, colleges and universities such as Arts Ed and PPA.
