PQA is a weekend performing arts Academy providing tuition for children and young people from 4-18 years. Students spend three hours with us, rotating through hour-long sessions in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre and Film & Television. Students are split into groups according to their age with tailored classes and expert performing arts teachers. Poppets class for 4-5 year olds are shorter and last 90 minutes.
We provide a space for children and young people to express themselves, build confidence and, most importantly, have fun! 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.
Our teachers are all professionally trained in their respective fields and have experience in leading arts education, performing professionally and directing films and TV shows. They have been carefully chosen for their passion to inspire and motivate so that our students can achieve their very best!
