How We Work

How We Work

PQA is a weekend performing arts Academy providing tuition for children and young people from 4-18 years. Students are split into groups according to their age with tailored classes and expert performing arts teachers. We provide a space for children and young people to express themselves, build confidence and, most importantly, have fun!

Our Academies

Since 2007, PQA has given outstanding performing arts training in an environment that is friendly, safe and rewarding. Students spend three hours with us, rotating through hour-long sessions in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre and Film & Television.

The PQA model was created by Pauline Quirke and her dedicated team of performing arts specialists. With Academies across the UK, our inspirational Principals and teachers work tirelessly to ensure every student receives unrivalled support and amazing opportunities.

This results in Academies that deliver the highest educational values possible, with industry standard teaching and continuous opportunities for our students to thrive and flourish.
