Stagecoach Putney

At Stagecoach Putney, we offer an all round Performing Arts training experience. We have regular singing, acting and dance classes within school term time, but we also offer holiday workshops, LAMDA examinations, theatre trips and additional performing opportunities outside of Stagecoach.
We put on a production once a year and have a Performance Troupe open to every child. We pride ourselves on offering quality part time classes in singing, acting and dance for 4-18 year olds, in a safe and nurturing environment. We have developed a unique Educational Framework for each stage of learning. We want to help develop every child's inner confidence and 'Creative Courage' and help even the shyest children become more outgoing and build skills that will last a lifetime.
Our classes run on Wednesdays at Hotham Primary School and Fridays and Saturdays at Brandlehow Primary School. We offer 90 minute 'Early Stages' classes for 4-6 year olds and 3 hour 'Main Stages' classes for children aged 6 years plus. It is never to late to give Stagecoach a go, with our eldest students enjoying our 'Further Stages' classes for up to 18 years. Get in touch today to find out more or enrol for our 2-week trial below.

West End spectacular!

A huge well done to our Further Performance Troupe who took to the stage at His Majesty's Theatre in London's West End this month. 18 of our students worked together on an original piece and had a blast at 'Stagecoach Live' with other Stagecoach schools from around the country. An amazing display of professionalism and team work!

In addition to our Stagecoach sessions we also offer London Academy of music and Dramatic Art tuition . In LAMDA lessons, students work on monologues or poems and prose.

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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Stagecoach Further Stages
Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.

She then continued her studies in Cultural Policy and Management at City University, London.
