Stagecoach Theatre Arts

Investment: £5,000 - £9,999

Category: Education

Stagecoach Theatre Arts has over 40,000 students worldwide who attend the schools because of their enthusiasm for our training. Stagecoach's success has been recognised by the British Franchise Association: it won the Newcomer of the Year award in 1996, has been a finalist for the Franchisor of the Year Award on three occasions, and won the prestigious Sir Bernard Ingham Trophy in 2000. You can share in the phenomenal success of an innovative business which has been replicated hundreds of times in several countries.

 Stagecoach started in April 1988, when Stephanie Manuel and David Sprigg launched the first three schools in Richmond, Redhill and Woking in rented rooms. By 1993 Manuel and Sprigg were masterminding 24 schools, from a small office in East Molesey. Because the administrative burden was becoming so great, they turned to franchising. The franchising went so well that in 2001, they floated the company on the Alternative Investment Market, raising almost £3 million to expand the business.
 The Stagecoach franchise has been enormously successful over the years. There are already over 600 franchised Stagecoach schools in the UK and Ireland and others in Australia, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Malta, Spain, South Africa, Canada and the United States.


As the Principal of your school, you will bring your own personal creative and business qualities which, together with the proven format, should ensure the success of your schools. Principals are responsible for the standards of education, discipline, care and control of students. While experienced professionals take the classes, Principals do not teach. This enables you to monitor closely all the aspects of the school in your role as Head Teacher.


You will receive a week's comprehensive and uncomplicated training to run a Stagecoach Theatre Arts School. In addition, you will receive bespoke software, manuals and systems which will enable you to effectively run your business efficiently and professionally.
 We have developed this concept specifically to be easy to run and control so that most of your time can be spent educating your students and monitoring their progress. With this in mind we are constantly available to advise and support you in all matters concerning your students' artistic and educational development.
