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!

We offer Performing Arts Exams

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.
