PQA Durham

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

Principal note:

The excellent modern facilities at our Academy include a large drama and dance studio, rehearsal rooms, a large Film & TV room and a special room for our Poppets class.

Our teaching staff are all dedicated teaching professionals with extensive professional experience in the fields of theatre and TV & film. The team is dedicated to providing first-class, action-packed sessions that are lots of fun. We deliver Musical Theatre, Comedy & Drama and Film & Television classes and a Poppets class for the younger children.

As Principal of PQA Durham, I aim to make every young person feel relaxed, inspired and confident to develop skills in an unpressurised environment. All students are treated equally with plenty of performance opportunities including our amazing West End Show. It is fantastic to see students leaving the Academy at the end of the day enthusiastic and looking forward to the following Saturday.
