Stagecoach Sydenham

A very warm welcome to Stagecoach Sydenham! We provide quality part-time training in performing arts for children aged 4-18yrs in the Sydenham and surrounding greater Crystal Palace area, since 2003.
Our aim is to nurture and develop young potential through singing, drama and dance classes, stretching young imaginations and helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and fun!
Students perform for friends and family at least twice a year, we regularly participate in the Stagecoach Showcases in London’s West End theatres, and past pupils have gone on to study at drama schools and perform on stage in the West End.

Classes cancelled

As a result of the latest guidance the Government has issued about Coronavirus, I am sorry to report that our Stagecoach school is now closed for the remainder of this term. This has not been an easy decision but the safety of my team, your children and families are of paramount importance to me. Watch this space for updates for the Summer term

Join us!

Enrolments are still open for the Summer term although term dates are still TBC. There are limited spaces in Friday Main Stages (6-18 years) and Early Stages (4-6 years) classes. Enrol for a 2 week trial and we will contact you about the term dates ASAP

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)

Principal - Kim Findlay - Stagecoach Franchisee of the Year 2019

 Kim is Stagecoach's Franchisee of the Year 2019 and also runs Stagecoach Shirley in Croydon. A former actor, dancer and choreographer from New Zealand, Kim holds bachelor degrees in International Business and Spanish, as well as a Diploma in Performing Arts.
She began performing in amateur productions when she was 10 and feels that this experience as a child has contributed enormously to her adult life. Kim wishes Stagecoach had been around when she was growing up in New Zealand!
As a member of numerous South West London local amateur performing arts companies, Kim spends much of her time performing and choreographing musicals, as well as looking after her 2 children.
Kim is thrilled to be running Stagecoach Sydenham alongside Shirley and is excited to continue to bring her experience and enthusiasm to the school.
