PQA St Albans

We are an exciting, dedicated, performing arts Academy with sessions for kids, teenagers and young adults specialising in Comedy and Drama, Musical Theatre (singing, dancing and acting) and Film and Television (which covers film making and all aspects of media training.)

Our St Albans Academy operates out of The SandPit Theatre on site at The Sandringham School, Ridgeway, St Albans AL4 9NX every Sunday from 9.45am – 1pm.

Here we welcome students from the ages of 4 to 18 years, all based within the areas of St Albans, Sandridge, Luton, London Colney, Colney Heath, Stevenage, Frogmore, Brickey Wood, Radlett, Childwickbury, Redbourne, Oaklands, Napsbury, Coleman Green, and Tyttenhanger.

Principal note:

Students at our Academy often ask me what it is like to be a Principal of a performing arts Academy and my answer is very simple. I live for PQA St Albans on my Sundays.

The chance to challenge, encourage and inspire every child who attends our Academy is the greatest gift of all, and even better, it's my job! If you have children or are surrounded by them, you will know that every child has different levels of ability and confidence.
