PQA Welwyn Garden City

PQA Welwyn Garden City is a dedicated performing arts Academy at the Ridgeway Academy (formerly the Sir Frederic Osborn School) in Hertfordshire, with classes for children and young adults in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre (singing & dancing) and Film & Television.

Our academy operates every Saturday from 9.45-13.00 and 13:45-17:00 where we welcome students from 4-18 years within the Welwyn Garden City, Tewin, Lemsford, Codicote, Hatfield, Stevenage, Hitchin, Knebworth, Hertford, Wheathampstead, Sheepcote, Watton At Stone, Brookmans Park, Woolmer Green, Arlesey, Biggleswade, Baldock, Flamstead, Essendon & the Hertfordshire area.

Principal note:

We are always working on exciting projects and events within our Academy, especially performing one of our productions on a West End stage, and a chance to enter in the PQA Film Festival which enables students to see their own film projects on the big screen in Leicester Square, London.

Our fantastic team who have been hand-picked by Louise & Adam at PQA Welwyn are all passionate in every child's unique journey to mould their experience around their individual needs, whether they come along to build their confidence or if they are wanting to excel their passion into the professional industry.

We would love to show you what we do here at PQA Welwyn Garden City! If you're interested in a FREE Taster Session, please email or call us for a chat, and we'll arrange for you to visit the Academy. Alternatively, you can register your interest online.
