The Pauline Quirke Academy is a weekend performing arts school for 4-18 year olds, offering training in all areas of the performing arts every weekend for 44 weeks a year!
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 and are taught by specialist teachers.
PQA’s core modules teach a comprehensive range of skills, which are useful for everyday life, not just a career in the performing arts, whilst masterclasses allow students to experience more specialist lessons in areas like stage combat, beat boxing, street dance and magic.
PQA believe in inspiring and rewarding our students, so we offer free group Trinity College London exams, cinema screenings, the chance to join our exclusive agency for professional work- Quirky Kidz and the opportunity to perform at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End.
Be yourself. Be amazing!
