I started The Pauline Quirke Academy (PQA) because when I was younger some of my happiest times were spent in drama classes. Looking back I can see that the skills I learnt and the friends I made are really where it all started for me, so i wanted to re-create that opportunity for a new generation of young people. I hope we can welcome you into the PQA family soon.

The PQA model has been carefully created by people who work professionally in the performing arts arena and academic sectors, ensuring our classes deliver high educational values combined with realistic industry practices meaning our students enjoy the best possible performing experiences.
