Your child is in safe hands. All of our Team are Enhanced DBS checked.



Due to Covid-19, we have temporarily closed our doors. We hope to be back with a bang in September 2020. Meanwhile, if you are a current student or interested in our Autumn Term, you can now enjoy STAGECOACH AT HOME. Email for more info.


In November 2019, we took our fantastic performance troupe to the Adelphi Theatre in London. We were so impressed with the professionalism and talent from our 20 selected students, who worked so incredibly hard and showed kindness and support to other schools involved. GO TEAM MAIDENHEAD!


We offer students access to some of the world’s best known performing arts examining boards. The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art is one of the UK’s oldest drama schools. LAMDA- accredited exams are highly prestigious and can count towards the UCAS points system when applying to universities and colleges.


Due to popular demand, Stagecoach Maidenhead have opened a BRAND NEW SATURDAY AFTERNOON SCHOOL! If you are interested in our performing arts classes and would like to come a long for a Two Week trial, please email:


Our themed parties are perfect for children looking for a unique celebration to remember. With lots of birthday themes to choose from, children are taken on a roller-coaster ride through their imagination as they take part in exciting games, storytelling and of course - singing and dancing!

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!
