PQA Cheltenham

PQA Cheltenham is a dedicated performing arts school at the Pates Grammar School, with classes for kids and young adults in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre (singing, dancing and acting through song), and Film & Television.

Principal note:

PQA Cheltenham is lucky enough to be based in Pates Grammar School in Cheltenham, and have weekly access to its wonderful onsite facilities, including the purpose-built performing arts block, which is also the main reception area that students and parents come to every Saturday.

The studio (where Comedy & Drama classes are taught) benefits from a purpose-built computerised sound and lighting system and is used when we do Comedy & Drama showcases.
