On the 16th June 2019. Some of our students from both our Saturday and Sunday Main Schools performed at The Cresset Theate in Peterborough. Not only did they get to perform on stage but the students also got to take part in two different dance workshops throughout the day. As always our students did us proud and we all had a really good day.

The London Stadium

In March we got to perform at The London Stadium at The Saracens verses Harlequins Rugby Game. Our students alongside hundreds of other Stagecoach Students sang before the match and then again during the half time. We even got to watch the Rugby too!!

Disneyland Paris-July 18

We took 50 of our students and their families to Disneyland Paris. It was magical, the students took part in Disney Workshops, met the characters, performed outside the Castle, rode the rides and the most amazing part was when they performed in the Pre-Parade. Our Principal was honoured to lead the parade and carry the Stagecoach Banner!

Early Stages

Here are some of our some of our lovely Early Stages Students. Our Early Stages have lots of fun in their sessions that run for 90 minutes alongside our Main School classes. We don't just teach them the skills in singing, dancing and acting, they also become more confident, more sociable and learn skills for life.

Sheffield City Hall

In March 2018 the whole of our Main School performed along side other Stagecoach Schools on stage at The Sheffield City Hall. The event was part of Stagecoach's 30th Birthday celebrations and also to raise money for the charity Home Start. We had a celebrity compare for the evening and we are now planning another big event!!!!

Her Majesty's Theatre

We love to give our students lots of opportunities to perform. We have performed at Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End of London quite a few times now! It is always an incredible opportunity for the students to get a taste of what it is like to perform in a professional show in the West End. Amazing!!

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!
