Company Overview

At Stagecoach Theatre Arts we teach children and teenagers, ages 4-18, how to sing dance and act; not only to perform on stage and beyond, but more importantly to perform better in life. For more than 25 years we have seen young people gain confidence, stretch themselves, and build essential life skills while learning from specialist teachers each week. Stagecoach is the largest network of part time performing arts schools within the UK.

Franchise Overview

The company was founded 26 years ago. There are more than 650 Stagecoach Schools in nine countries, including USA, Canada, Australia, Spain, Malta, Ireland, Gibraltar, Germany and South Africa. Almost 40,000 students attend Stagecoach Schools. We have both new and established territories for sale. We continue to grow and develop both in the UK and Internationally.

Training

In addition to our pre-training we offer a cohesive five day induction course to prepare you fully for your role as a Stagecoach Principal. The training courses take place in February for an April take-over/opening: May for a September take-over/opening; and October for a January take-over/opening. You will also have a dedicated Regional Franchise Manager for ongoing support.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

A Stagecoach Theatre Arts franchisee’s role is to ensure that every aspect of a school runs smoothly, creatively and is financially viable. A venue needs to be secured with experienced DBS-checked teachers. Each week the school runs a number of fun, exciting and challenging classes to help the students grow in confidence and  inspires and enriches children through the performing arts.
