Stagecoach Grimsby

Welcome! At Stagecoach Grimsby we provide a nurturing, caring environment for our students to learn skills for life – these skills do not just disappear when not on stage!

The Grimsby centre has been established since 1998 and our coaches are all highly experienced professionals and qualified teachers in their respective disciplines. Classes are divided by age, with each stage covering material and challenges which are appropriate for their age and experience, encouraging self-confidence, self-awareness, team-building and leadership skills.

Holiday Workshops take place every summer, too, and non-Stagecoach students are welcome; as with all Stagecoach courses, the classes are great fun. They also serve as an excellent ‘taster’ session for your child, before joining the main school.

Meet The Team



This term we will be developing our performance skills in singing, dance and drama, with music and themes from the wonderful 'Les Miserables'. In February, we will have a 'West End Workshop' with Victoria Farley using her experience working on the show itself. We are very excited for this and looking forward to the day!


Summer term is our exam term and we will be entering our students for Performance Arts Awards again this year. We have an incredible 100% pass rate over many years, with 99% of our students opting to take the exams. We look forward to performing for the examiners in June 2018


This summer, we will be dancing, singing and acting our way through HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL! Come along and join us for a week of learning through fun. Make new friends and entertain an audience with this fully costumed show with lights, sound and stage make-up, too. You don't need to be a term-time Stagecoach student to take part!


Here at Grimsby Stagecoach, we are so incredibly excited that we have been invited to perform in this professional production. 56 students and parents! will be onstage in this Bill Kenwright production at Grimsby Auditorium at the end of May 2018. High Flying Adored, indeed!

'Dirty Dancing'

Our Dance Troupe were invited to perform in a touring production of ‘An Evening of Dirty Dancing’ This was a professional show and so we were over the moon to be asked to take part. We presented a fabulous dance piece to ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’. We came on halfway through the second act to a huge fanfare, with strobe lighting and fireworks!


Stagecoach Grimsby is inspected annually by an independent inspector (Trinity Guildhall). You will be pleased to know that we are, once again, an 'Outstanding' school. Thank you to all our lovely, committed students and excellent teachers. Why don't you come and see for yourself?

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.
