The Amanda-Jayne Stage School was established in 1981 at the Parkwood Community Centre in Rainham with just six pupils. Since then the school has developed, expanded and grown into one of the largest schools in the Medway towns. 


The School is renowned for its biennial production of SHOWTIME, which boasts showstopping Musical Theatre numbers with spectacular costumes, staging and lighting, whilst showcasing the vast range of talent the school has to offer.

Pupils meet weekly on a Saturday, and enjoy training in all aspects of Musical Theatre and Dance. The School is affiliated to the British Ballet Organisation, with many of our teachers being fully qualified. Many of our younger children regularly participate in medal examinations, in both dance and singing disciplines.

​Our aim at the school is to provide our pupils with an all-round training that is both enjoyable and productive, all within a professional, safe and family orientated environment. We aim to help develop a passion for musical theatre, whilst also fostering life-long friendships and creating magical memories.
