Stageskool Theatre Arts
A Place for Learning, Performing and Making Friends
Where Energy, Enthusiasm and Comittment are the only requirements
At Stageskool we teach students how to dance, act and sing through performing arts classes at our schools in Portsmouth and Gosport and Norwich.
Energy, enthusiasm and commitment are our only entry requirements, so students of every ability get to meet new friends and widen their social horizons within a safe, active and structured environment.
Our classes and curriculum build an understanding of the skills required within the performing arts, developing technique, confidence, imagination, teamwork and individual expression which helps students to grow in confidence and develop their communication skills.
Our classes are carefully structured to accommodate the perfect balance between learning and fun.
WHERE EVERYONE’S A STAR!
We know that enrolling yourself or your child into a theatre school can be a bit overwhelming. But we also know that if we deliver the right kind of support to you, then years from now you will look back on this moment and know it was the best decision you ever made. When you found more than a theatre school, you found a theatre school family!

Having performed myself in my younger years and even now as part of an amateur dramatics group I know how performing is both exciting and intoxicating. It’s always a challenge when I take on a new role, but it reminds me just how much I love performing and why I created Stageskool Theatre Arts.
Before I started Stageskool, I worked as a Teacher and NVQ Assessor teaching Dance and Performing Arts at sixth form and further education colleges and, Health & Social Care and Childcare up to degree level. I also worked with young offenders and pupils that had been excluded from school and I have seen throughout my teaching how generic life skills gained by practicing the performing arts can be life changing; building self-esteem, increasing confidence, learning how to work in a team and at the same time building friendships and memories.
With the help of my amazingly talented, fresh, passionate teachers I am very fortunate to be able to share my love of the arts and to encourage, nurture and inspire young people to love the arts too. So, I hope you will join us as we continue to grow as a dynamic independent theatre school.
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our customers say:
My son attends Stageskool since it opened in Portsmouth. He really enjoys it and is gaining a lot of experience in dance, tap, singing and acting. He has taken part in shows and competitions. The Manager and Teachers are all very friendly, experienced and professional. Most importantly “He has found his tribe; where he feels he belongs.” ♡♡
Asked if Amy enjoued her free trial Hannah sent this reply:
She loved it and told me all about it. The first time in a year she actually felt like she was my daughter again. Lockdown has really made her anxious and all her confidence and enthusiasm just went and although she was unsure about it, I said if you don’t like it you don’t have to go again just try and I’m so glad I did x
Stageskool has given my boy so much more confidence and has just taken part in his first show to showcase the skills they have learned so far. He loved it and has awoken some passion inside him which is really great to see. Great teachers and understand each child’s talent and know how much to push each child. every child had a massive smile on there face after there performance.
