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!
