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 their bi-annual production of 'Showtime' which boasts showstopping musical theatre numbers and spectacular costumes, whilst showcasing the vast range of talent the school has to offer.

Pupils meet weekly and enjoy training in all aspects of dance, stage production, drama and singing. The School is affiliated to the British Ballet Organisation and most recently have introduced examinations with both Trinity College and LAMDA. Many of our younger children regularly participate in dance examinations.

​Our aim at the school is to provide our pupils with an all round training which is both enjoyable and productive, all within a professional, safe and family orientated environment. 

​Our aim is to help develop a passion for musical theatre, whilst fostering life long friendships and creating magical memories.


Our dancing, singing and acting year is nearly over and we in full swing for our latest production, Cinderella!​

​Break a leg to all the children taking part in the show - we hope you have a magical sparkly week!

After Cinderella, we will be having our Summer break, and we will return to class on Saturday 7th September 2019.


We have spaces available in our pre-school class for children aged 3 to 4 1/2 years at Hempstead Valley Community Hall for next term, and also in our primary classes up to 8 years of age.



Classes for our older children take place at Woodlands Family Hub, Gillingham and we have limited places available in these classes too.

For all our classes, we can offer a free taster session for your child to come along and join in the class.  If you would like to book a FREE taster session, please contact us.
