PQA Bury

PQA Bury is a specialist performing arts school, with classes for kids and young adults in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre (singing & dancing) and Film & Television.

Our Bury Academy operates every Saturday and we welcome students from 4-18 years within the Bury, Tottington, Greenmount, Ramsbottom, Walshaw, Brandleshome, Radcliffe, Whitefield, Heywood, Rawtenstall and Haslingden area.

Principal note:

In 2017 I decided it was time to return to my roots in the Northwest and bring the fantastic Pauline Quirke Academy to the young people of Bury. I had previously been the Principal of PQA Eastleigh, down in Southampton, from 2015 -2017. I am so proud of all that PQA Bury has achieved since we opened on 14th October 2017, especially during this difficult last year. But let's not forget all our amazing performances: Pride of Bury Awards, Bury Pride, our own Red Carpet Cinema Screening, numerous Showcases, Festivals, Pantomimes including Snow White at the Long Field Suite, Production Shows - Matilda & Wizard of Oz, and a National Film Festival!
