PQA Bristol

PQA Bristol is a dedicated performing arts school, our Academy runs classes for children and young adults in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre (singing & dancing) and Film & Television.

Principal note:

Here at PQA Bristol, we have had an extraordinary year! We performed The Little Mermaid at the 1542 Performing Arts Centre, launched a brand-new academy and our academies developed their skills and confidence across their weekly modules!
As we look towards the Autumn 2023 term we are super excited to announce our Saturday AM academy will be starting rehearsals for their West End Show! Our Friday and Saturday PM academies will be starting rehearsals for their performance at Wells Cathedral with G4 – it’s all going on at PQA Bristol!

Our Poppets will be exploring a range of themed sessions, whilst developing their Performing Arts skills and confidence along the way!
Here at PQA students participate in an array of diverse and challenging modules designed to engage and excite our students- there is never a dull moment! We are passionate about building confidence and developing children's skills in the performing arts while striving to allow everyone to reach their potential! Our staff are fully trained and actively working in the industry, giving our students the best possible experience in their modules. With their commitment and expertise, we ensure that every student is allowed to be themselves and be amazing! Join us for a Free Taster Session and see what we’re all about! I look forward to seeing you at PQA Bristol soon.
