Stagecoach Otford

We provide high quality part-time training in the Performing Arts for children aged 4 - 18 years. Our aim is to nurture and develop young potential through singing, acting and dance classes for children - stretching young imaginations, building confidence and life skills whilst also having fun through all the three disciplines.

Our Principal, Lauren, has a background as a professional Singer, Guest Entertainer and Music teacher, and brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience that she aims to instil into the school and students.

Lauren, alongside her fantastic team of passionate and experienced teachers, strives to deliver excellence in education, and inspire the students of Stagecoach Otford - allowing each and every child to flourish not only in class, but in life.

At Stagecoach Otford we are open every week during school term time with holiday workshops during the school holidays.

Come and see what we're up to this term by enrolling online or contacting Lauren directly to participate in a two week trial!
