Stagecoach Performing Arts

Stagecoach Performing Arts

Every student participates in all three performing arts disciplines - drama classes, dance classes and singing classes - helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and lots of fun! In addition, opportunities exist for students to be offered professional work in film, theatre and modelling by the Stagecoach Agency.

Why Stagecoach Performing Arts ?

Staff

It is a strict policy of the school to employ only experienced teaching staff, many of whom are professionals in their own right. All staff members are screened through the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) for their suitability to work with children. Stagecoach is also dedicated to developing its staff through one day workshops and in-service teaching courses.

Child Protection

Stagecoach has led the way in developing measures to secure the safety of students and is often quoted as an example of Best Practice by specialists in the child protection arena. Stagecoach retains the services of Steve Lowe, a leading child protection expert, who advises and implements the company’s child protection protocols.

Discipline

Since a career in the performing arts is best attained through strict self-discipline, Stagecoach teaches its students in a structured environment and encourages disciplined behaviour. Stagecoach reserves the right to dismiss students who are consistently disruptive. Students are also expected to attend regularly and arrive on time for class.

Inspections

Stagecoach prides itself in giving the best possible tuition and in order to monitor and maintain this high standard, all Stagecoach schools are inspected at least once a year. This is carried out by an independent School Inspection Agency.

Reports

Parents are kept in touch with a student’s progress by way of an individual written report. Provided twice a year, each teacher and the Principal gives feedback on the development of every child.

 

Medals

Stagecoach does not reward natural talent and ability, believing this to be a given gift, but rather acknowledges effort and perseverance. Medals and awards are presented to students for long attendance, who have attended Stagecoach in excess of three years. Also every school presents one annual award to a student for exceptional progress or achievement.

Examinations

Whilst it is not Stagecoach policy to conform to a strict syllabus, classwork covers many recognised board requirements and students may be entered for the Performance Arts Awards, Group Musical Theatre examinations and LAMDA Speech and Acting examinations.

Uniform

The Stagecoach uniform is compulsory and a stock of inexpensive clothing, bearing the school’s logo, is available for purchase. Jazz shoes are also compulsory and can be purchased directly from the school.

Young Performer Magazine

Young Performer is the only national performing arts magazine for young people. The magazine has been inspired and commissioned by Stagecoach itself. Every Stagecoach student, from Stage 1 upwards, receives a complimentary copy once per term.
