Stagecoach Portishead

Welcome from your Principal - Fae McIntyre.

Welcome to Stagecoach Portishead where we provide quality part-time training in the performing arts for children aged 4-18yrs. 
We believe our classes can help every child reach their potential and will make a difference in whatever they want to be, giving them the tools to explore, perform, create and take risks in a safe and nurturing environment. We are proud to offer a full and rounded education, teaching life skills to build confidence and stretch imaginations, allowing each child to develop at their own pace with the support of the group.

Parent Testimonial

"The teachers are fantastic, sharing their knowledge and supporting the children as they learn to develop and refine their own skills. They have had so many opportunities through Stagecoach that they just wouldn't have had anywhere else. Both children love attending Stagecoach and can't imagine not going"

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)
