PQA Bolton

PQA Bolton is a dedicated performing arts school that operates from Thornleigh Salesian College. Our Academy runs classes for children and young adults in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre (singing & dancing) and Film & Television.

Principal note:

Hello and welcome to PQA Bolton! I am pleased to introduce myself as the Principal of this wonderful Academy, filled with talented young people!

As a qualified teacher and experienced performer, I am passionate about combining my two loves, teaching and the performing arts, to provide an outstanding, inspiring and safe learning environment in which our students can make friends, grow in confidence and gain new and valuable experiences.

We provide three exciting and unique modules delivered by experienced teachers and performing artists. We are confident that our classes in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre, and Film & Television will offer skills that our 6-18-years-olds will treasure and be enriched by. Our Poppets class embraces the imaginations of our 4 and 5-year-olds and develops this into skills and thrills that they will carry with them throughout their young lives!
