PQA Leicester

PQA Leicester is a dedicated performing arts school at the Tudor Grange Samworth Academy, with classes for children and young adults in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre (singing & dancing) and Film & Television.

Principal note:

As Principal of PQA Leicester, I want every young person who trains with us to leave the Academy every weekend with a smile on their face and buzzing with tales from their classes! There is no one 'star' performer at our Academy – they're all stars, and will all have an equal opportunity to dazzle you in their regular showcases.

We offer our student's so many exciting opportunities at PQA; we have hosted professional Masterclasses with industry stars including 'Broadchurch' actor Joe Sims and West End performers Josie Brightwell, Djalenga Scott and Nicky Griffiths. The full Academy has performed on the West End stage of Her Majesty's Theatre (home to 'Phantom of the Opera') in three original musicals, 'Fright Night', 'The Lazy Ace' and most recently ‘Trouble’s a-Brewin' last year.
