Principal note:

Welcome to PQA Portsmouth!

Our Portsmouth performing arts Academy operates from the Trafalgar School every Saturday from 9.45-13.00 where we welcome students from 4 to 18.

Since 2007, PQA has given children outstanding performing arts training in an environment that is friendly, safe and rewarding.
Each week students have sessions in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre and Film & Television, led by our fantastic team of teachers and teaching assistants.

We are always working on exciting projects which feature our students performing in a variety of different roles, in musicals, plays, and films.

We are passionate about every student's personal journey with us, and the whole team works hard to ensure every single student is given the opportunity to become the best performer they can be and reach their potential creatively.

Every student has something unique to offer, and it's our job to encourage this and develop it!
