PQA Cambridge

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

Principal note:

We offer every member of our Academy the chance to do something they really enjoy. We teach confidence and important life skills through the arts ranging from diverse ensemble and devised theatre, to the elaborate worlds of film & television and the West End.

We believe every young person we teach is important and learning is about doing. At PQA Cambridge we make sure our students really enjoy their experience; after all, theatre is entertainment!

PQA Cambridge operates on Saturday from 9.45am-1pm and 1.45-5pm at the Parkside Federation Academy in the centre of Cambridge.

Our fantastic facilities include a large hall, with a stage, lighting and sound facilities; a black box drama studio and a classroom with a smart projector and speaker system.
