Stagecoach Leicester has been running for a number of years at Guthlaxton College and at Leicester High School for Girls. The school prides itself on providing the best performing arts education to young people throughout Leicester. Opening Hours Early Stages – Leicester High School for Girls Saturday 09:30-11:00 11:15-12:45 14:00-15:30 Main School – Guthlaxton College Saturday 16:30-19:30 Main School – Leicester High School for Girls Saturday 10:00-13:00 Background Stagecoach Theatre Arts have been nurturing and developing young people's potential for over 21 years. With over 700 schools worldwide and more than 40,000 students, Stagecoach is the longest running and most successful performing arts schools network in the world. We not only deliver quality performance arts training but ensure that each child gets the most out of their experience by building life skills and confidence while having a lot of fun and meeting new friends. Every student from aged 4-18 years participates in each of the three musical theatre disciplines - Drama, Dance and Singing. Each three hour session for 6-18 year olds is split into three 1-hour classes, where young people get the chance to learn each skill in small class sizes of similar ages. Children aged 4-6 years are introduced to Stagecoach through Early Stages classes which run for a shorter period of 90 minutes, split into three 30 minute sessions in dance, drama and singing. As we keep class sizes small (15 maximum) we are able to nurture young raw talent alongside encouraging and inspiring those who might need additional confidence building.
