Welcome to The Pauline Quirke Academy Wolverhampton. The Academy has become well established over the past couple of years and is beginning to settle into being part of the community. We have a great group of teachers and students and lots of plans for the future.
Our major target is confidence; it is just as rewarding, if not more, to see a child who lacks confidence step forward in class as it is to see a confident and experienced child do a great performance at show-time. We try to achieve this through fun and entertaining classes while incorporating the skills and techniques necessary to improve their performing ability.
2015 saw our first cinema screening with the students seeing themselves on the big screen amongst a total of 26 films shown at our local cinema. It was an exciting event with students walking the red carpet and being interviewed by a film crew and photographed as they entered the screen.
2016 is finishing with our second Panto Fairy Jail featuring nearly 30 main characters and loads of songs it is a great fun show packed with jokes and corny lines (the corniest ones mostly written by Principal Julian).
In May 2017 the students will travel to London for our second West End experience in The Lazy Ace. Our first show was massively rewarding for the students and gave them some idea of the depth of knowledge of their part that is required for a major show.
Students have also visited the BBC Studios at Media City in Manchester on 2 separate occasions, had a day at Sky TV where they not only prepared a news report using Sky's state-of-the-art training suite but also appeared on Live TV as part of the audience of a show on Sky Sports and visited our local theatre to see Shrek the Musical. In February 2017 most of the older students will be visiting New York to take part in workshops on Broadway and TV studios.
