Stagecoach Leighton Buzzard

Welcome to Stagecoach Leighton Buzzard where we provide quality part-time performance arts training for children and young adults aged 4-18yrs.

Creative courage for life is the foundation of our teaching and learning here at Stagecoach Leighton Buzzard and we believe that performing arts offers a multitude of transferable skills so that no matter if your child is a Westend star of the future or is just looking to have fun and make friends they can achieve whatever they desire throughout their time at Stagecoach.

Stagecoach Leighton Buzzard has grown from a small school of 46 students to one that now educates over 130 students each week. Our highly experienced teachers will encourage and support all students to discover new talents, develop life skills and embrace education in a fun and exciting environment.

Our weekly classes on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings are taught by a wonderful team of dedicated, professional teachers, many with their own experience of performing, who are passionate about delivering engaging and enjoyable singing, acting and dance classes for children and young people of Leighton Buzzard and surrounding areas aged 4 to 18. We have a fantastic balance between education and fun and have been lucky enough to offer our students plenty of performing opportunities, both within the school, and further afield in theatres such as Her Majesty’s in London, the Birmingham NEC and NIA, The Grove in Dunstable, Milton Keynes Theatre, High Wycombe & Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

For a rewarding activity in a friendly environment where life skills such as confidence, creativity and communication flourish, look no further! Parents are invited to enrol their children in either our Friday evening classes at Gilbert Inglefield Academy or Saturday Mornings at  Leighton Middle School. 


Places are limited so book today to avoid disappointment! We look forward to welcoming you to our Stagecoach family!

Waterside Performance

What a wonderful time our Friday school students all had at the Waterside Theatre. The students had a fun packed day of workshopping, tech and dress rehearsals, photoshoots and making new friends. So proud of them all and they absolutely smashed their performance. Well done everybody xxx

West End Performance

What an amazing experience our Saturday school students had at The Adelphi Theatre in the West End. Such an honour to perform on such an amazing stage and the students absolutely smashed the performance. Well done everyone. Roll on next time, watch this space for more info. Exciting x

Madame Butterfly

Ellen Kent love having our students perform with them at their opera's at The Grove Theatre in Dunstable and last year we had so much fine doing Madame Butterfly. The students got to dress up as Geisha's whilst our little man from early stages got to play the part of "sorrow" and the production team said he was THE BEST Sorrow they'd ever had!

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!

(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!
