Our aim is to introduce the ethos behind The Pauline Quirke Academy, to demonstrate what we do and how we achieve our goals, how your children will benefit from our classes and, above all, to allow your children to get a flavour of The Academy.

Following a brief introduction the children are divided into age groups and get to sample classes in Musical Theatre, Comedy & Drama and Film & Television (don't worry if your child does not want to join in at this stage, we know that some will be shy, they can just watch and possibly have a go when they're ready). Parents are welcome to stay with their children – of course this happens with the younger groups but teenagers will usually not have their parents anywhere near an unpolished performance!

During the classes parents can have some refreshments, a chat with the PQA staff, and really begin to learn what we are all about! We would also encourage spending some time sneaking a look at your children during their sessions. They really are great fun...
...I look forward to meeting you on the day!

Aimee Leigh – Principal PQA Liverpool North

Meet the Team

Aimee Leigh


Aimee Leigh - Principal

Hello, my name is Aimee Leigh and I am pleased to introduce myself as the principal of PQA Liverpool North. Acting has always been my passion and has shaped the person I have become today. As a child all I wanted was to perform, I was always at my happiest when on stage and I was lucky enough to be able to follow my dream.

As a child I attended dance, drama and singing lessons and went on to study BTEC Musical theatre at Southport College and BA (Hons) Acting at The University of Central Lancashire. Over the years I have been in countless productions but none have given me the same fulfilment that I have found in teaching. I have taught in several schools and nurseries in the North West of England and I can honestly say there is nothing more inspirational than imagination of a child. I think it is so important for every child to have the opportunity of self expression through performance and with the help of the team at PQA Liverpool North I am sure that your child will shine.
