PQA Northampton

PQA Northampton is a dedicated performing arts school, with classes for kids and young adults in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre (acting, singing & dancing) and Film & Television.

Our Northampton Academy operates from Kingsthorpe College every Saturday from 09.45-13.00 and 13.45 - 17.00 where we welcome students aged 4 - 18 years from within the Kingsthorpe, Rushden, Higham Ferrers, Wellingborough, Kettering, Towcester, Daventry, Abington, Grange Farm and surrounding Northamptonshire area.

Principal note:

Since opening our students have enjoyed big screen success, when the films they made were shown at Vue Cinema in Northampton in private screenings. They have also performed in showcases in Comedy & Drama (including masks, duologues, improvisation, and Shakespeare), and Musical Theatre.

They have enjoyed fabulous masterclasses led by industry professionals in beat-boxing, street dance, stage combat, Wicked UK, special effects make-up, poetry, and rap.

We have 100% pass rate in students' group Trinity College London examinations which were free to all PQA students.
