The scale of the beautiful venue and performances serves as a testament to the students’ creativity and courage, inspired by the Principals of each school.

Natasha Clarke, Principal of Stagecoach in Staines, said “It’s such a thrill to see our incredible students up on a professional stage in a London theatre. The students worked incredibly hard on their Fosse piece which was quite technical and challenging. They have yet again risen to the challenge and made us all incredibly proud. What a wonderful bunch of students.”

A parent of one of the students highlighted the power of stage performances in building confidence and commented: “I have to admit, I shed a tear when I saw my daughter up on stage. I just couldn’t believe that this was the same shy girl I dropped off for her first day at Stagecoach Staines two years ago. It’s amazing to see her grow and believe in herself.”
