PQA Leicester

PQA Leicester is a dedicated performing arts school at the City of Leicester College, 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 are so many exciting opportunities for our students at PQA; professional masterclasses with industry stars, the opportunity to perform in an original show on a West End stage, cinema screenings of our students’ work and much, much more!

At PQA Leicester we pride ourselves on providing exciting weekly classes led by inspirational professionals. All of our team have an enhanced DBS check, take annual child protection courses and the majority are First Aid trained too. The safeguarding of our students is of paramount importance to us.

If you are looking for performing arts training in a fun and supportive environment, look no further! Our academy is like a second family to our students and we look forward to your child (and you!) joining us soon!
