Stagecoach Wilmslow

Welcome to Stagecoach Wilmslow! Our school has been operating as part of the UK's largest part-time performing arts network for over 25 years, and we are absolutely delighted to be placing so much focus on giving our students confidence through classes in all three disciplines – Dance, Drama and Singing – with our highly qualified and passionate teachers. The classes are in a safe environment where children can stretch their imaginations, gain life skills and grow in confidence.

Our school has grown by over 200% since Principal Emma Otway took over in 2016. She started at Stagecoach Wilmslow as the singing teacher, and is proud to now be leading a school with such a great reputation.

Come and join in the fun!

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.
