About our programmes

Early Stages

Our 90-minute Early Stages classes for 4-6 year olds introduce children to the basics of the Performing Arts in fun and engaging lessons. Children make friends, build confidence and explore their imaginations through performance. We put on small-scale shows and prepare children for the next steps, when they're ready to make the move up to Main Stages.

Main Stages

Children aged 6+ move into our 3-hour Main Stages classes. Mostly focused on Musical Theatre, we go in depth into the disciplines of Singing, Dance and Acting with a view to performing on stage, growing confidence and building life skills.

We give our students plenty of opportunities to perform on stage including yearly shows, West End showcases, performances in regional theatres and other local venues such as the Playhouse Weston.

Music Video Stars!

Stagecoach WSM students recently starred in a music video! Britain's Got Talent superstar singer Tom Ball released a stunning version of Radiohead's "Creep" and our students featured in the poignant story of a child finding a place where they belong. This was an amazing experience for our students, and something they'll remember for a lifetime!

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!

Principal - Patrick McIntyre

Patrick is a professional musician with an Honours Degree in Music Technology and a Masters in Songwriting. As well as performing regularly as a solo artist/events musician, Patrick has had a career as a singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He’s been in multiple bands and formed a songwriting/production company which went on to have successes in TV/Film and pop music throughout Europe, Australia and Asia.
From Patrick: “It’s impossible to overstate how Music and the Performing Arts have shaped who I am as a person. When I discovered that I could express myself through performing at a young age, it changed my whole world. From being shy and quiet when I was young, I became outgoing and expressive. I gained so much confidence, and the skills I developed have stayed with me for life."
"Launching my own school has been a dream since I became involved with Stagecoach back in 2017. It's a place where children can come and completely be themselves for three hours! No mobile phones, no external pressures, just their energy, imagination and endless creativity. I absolutely love running Stagecoach - it's truly the most rewarding thing seeing a child grow in confidence and find their feet through the medium of the Performing Arts."
