We have been based at the Centre since 2010. It’s a venue which features a superb theatre, where students put on fantastic performances and showcases.

We operate on Saturdays from 9.45am to pm and we welcome students aged 4 to 18. Each week students have sessions in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre, and Film & Television, led by our fantastic team of teachers.

We are always working on exciting projects which feature our students performing in a variety of different roles, in musicals, plays and films.

We are passionate about every student's personal journey with us, and the whole team work hard to ensure every single student is given the opportunity to become the best performer they can be, and reach their potential creatively. Every student has something unique to offer, and it's our job to encourage this and develop it.

We would love to show you what we do here at PQA Brighton West. If you're interested in a free taster session, please call us for a chat and we'll arrange for you to visit the Academy. Alternatively, you can request a brochure or enrol online now. We look forward to welcoming you to PQA Brighton West!
