Shelia Chapman, Stagecoach Sheffield principal, said: “The students did a fantastic job.

“Their performance was very professional and no one looked out of place on such a grand stage.

“They all had a great time meeting and performing with students from Stagecoach schools around the UK and, no doubt, making many new friends and memories.”

The performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s famous West End is one of the highlights of the Stagecoach calendar, as it celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
