What we do

At PQA, students spend three hours each Saturday rotating through hour-long sessions in Comedy and Drama, Musical Theatre and Film and Television. They are split into age groups and taught by specialist teachers. As well as many in-house productions, showcases and specialist masterclasses, PQA students have the chance to see their short film projects on the big screen at their local cinema, where they get to walk down the red carpet Hollywood-style! Some films are selected for the PQA Film Festival at Cineworld in Leicester Square. Students also have the opportunity to take part in one of the PQA theatre shows in London’s glittering West End. Alongside this, PQA believes in rewarding and inspiring its students, so along with regular reports to monitor their progress, all students are offered group exams through Trinity College London - at no additional charge to parents.
