Stage Academy is an innovative and unique part time performing arts school for 6 to 18 year olds. Committed to bringing out the full potential of every student we work exclusively with industry professional teachers to deliver our tailor made curriculum. Every week students receive tuition in acting, singing, dancing and a termly specialist subject to capture their imagination.

As well as creating incredible performers, Stage Academy’s ethos is to inspire its students with the self-confidence, teamwork, ambition and responsibility they need to achieve success in everything they do.

Our students enjoy the best performing arts training, at least two live performance opportunities each year, industry masterclasses, opportunities for agency representation, STARS awards and performance exams.

As a parent, you can expect regular contact from your principal including weekly emails, verbal feedback, termly reports and the confidence of knowing your child is being looked after by a team that puts keeping your child safe at the centre of everything we do.

It has been a great experience. The children seem to really enjoy the activities and the communication with parents brilliant.

Stage Academy Jrs for 4-6 at Highgate Primary School and Lauderdale House - Imaginative and expressive fun

Stage Academy Jrs is an exciting, high energy class combining fun drama activities and games, singing, dancing and the power of imagination into one life changing experience that will help your child to make new friends, express their individuality and prepare them for the adventures and challenges of growing up.

Whether your child is already a bundle of confidence or an inquisitive observer just waiting to come out of their shell, our industry leading teaching team helps every child to explore and grasp their full potential.

All of our teachers have trained at renowned performing arts schools or have years of theatrical experience (or both!) so they’re fully equipped to help your child get the most out of our classes.

Our experience with Stage Academy has exceeded all our expectations so far. Our daughter has gone from crying on her first day to asking how many days left to her next session! It’s been three weeks and we have seen progress in her confidence which was exactly the reason we chose Stage Academy. Andrew’s professionalism is exceptional and consistent. Our daughter has achieved lots already and we’re only just getting started.

We even offer a sibling discount to make our classes accessible to as many families as possible.
