ABOUT OUR OPENING DAY

We operate on Saturdays from 9.45am–1pm, where we welcome students aged 4 to 18. 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 work 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!

We would love to show you what we do here at PQA Ealing. If you're interested in a free taster session, please call us for a chat and we'll arrange for you to visit the Academy, where Principal Charlotte will be on hand to assist you. Alternatively, you can request a brochure or enrol online now – we look forward to welcoming you to PQA Ealing!

Jennifer

Comedy & Drama

Jennifer - Comedy & Drama

I've always loved acting since doing it at school and taking part in all the school productions acting, directing and designing. Slowly I began to realise that I couldn't see myself doing anything else but acting!

At 18, I was lucky enough to be awarded a place on the BA (Hons) Acting course at The Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts in London.

In 2015, I graduated after three years of learning an incredible amount from industry professionals. A week after graduating I secured a six-month contract with 'Hollyoaks' (Channel 4) to play series regular 'Rachel Hardy' and a starring role in the film 'Astral'. Since leaving the show I have filmed a role in the BBC2 show 'White Gold' and the film 'My Name is Lenny' where I star alongside John Hurt and Josh Hellman.

I am really excited to be a part of the team at PQA Ealing and hope to share some of my knowledge of the acting world!
