Stagecoach Kensington

Stagecoach Kensington prides itself on offering a safe environment where children can receive quality training in the performing arts. We welcome new students of all ages and abilities. Many children join us with no previous experience and all we ask is that they are enthusiastic and keen to learn. Stagecoach Kensington students thrive in an environment where creativity is nurtured and technique and style are developed each week. It's fantastic to see how they become more confident, poised and self-assured. These are not just skills for performing, they are skills for life!

LAMDA Examinations

We offer LAMDA at Stagecoach Kensington. One to one lessons working towards exams in acting and musical theatre. LAMDA is a great way of working on presentation, memory and 11 & 13+ entry skills. We've just had the results back for the 50 students who took exams in December 2018 and all received distinctions and merits. Well done everyone!


GALA PERFORMANCE at HER MAJESTY'S THEATRE! Stagecoach Kensington was thrilled to participate in West End Live, which was held at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End, on Sunday 24th June. We were one of only sixteen schools to take part and we performed a piece of musical theatre. It was a great experience for all students involved.

Summer Showcase 2018

At the end of the Summer term, over 300 students from Stagecoach Kensington performed in our annual showcases. With songs and dances from a variety of popular musicals including Annie, Hairspray, Mary Poppins and The Greatest Showman, all the children worked so hard and the feedback from parents was brilliant. Well done everyone!

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)

Holiday Workshops

Themed Children's Parties

Birthdays & Celebrations

We understand that with the increasing demands on parents, juggling the pressures of work and family life, time is of the essence. Therefore Stagecoach Parties provide a way to remove the stress from what should be a day of celebration for everyone and allow you to sit back, relax and let us do all the work! Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!

Meet The Team

Principal - Sara Catlin Brown

Sara grew up with the performing arts, regularly appearing on stage and in radio plays. She has worked extensively with Stagecoach, initially launching and running Stagecoach Chiswick with her sister Sally in April 2000 and then launching several schools in Surrey which became highly successful under their direction. They sold their Surrey Stagecoach schools in 2010 to purchase Stagecoach Kensington, Chiswick's neighbouring school. They have since launched more schools from Kensington and now run 6 Main schools and 13 Early Stages between them. The sisters combine running their schools and playing 'Mum' to the six children they have between them, ranging from 5yrs to 21yrs in age. Sara's own children have attended Stagecoach since they were little and have recently started to enter LAMDA Exams. Sara's youngest child is signed to the Stagecoach Agency and regularly attends auditions. Sara is convinced that their Stagecoach training has given them all a huge boost in their confidence and self-esteem. As Principal of Stagecoach Kensington, Sara, along with a great team of professionally trained teachers, ensures that the students receive a high standard of training in a warm and encouraging environment. The atmosphere is always fun and exciting and the children develop not just the skills needed to pursue a career in the performing arts, but also to develop the many social skills that will help them throughout their lives. Sara is passionate about the performing arts and the confidence that it can give to children.
