About Pauline Quirke Academy - Bristol
My name is Jaleelah and I am the Principal of the Pauline Quirke Academy Bristol. I took over the role in December 2012 and haven't looked back!
Since then, we at PQA Bristol have been on London's WestEnd, performed a full scale Panto as well as performed our very own show at The Bristol Hippodrome,'Thoroughly Marvellous Musicals' with PQA Bradley Stoke. In the next year we have our Cinema Screening, Trinity Exams, Showcases, end of term Demos and much more to look forward to.
As Principal of PQA Bristol, I want every young person who trains with us to leave the academy every weekend with a smile on their face and buzzing with tales from their classes. There is no one 'star' performer at our academy they're all stars, and will all have an equal opportunity to dazzle you at the end of each term in their showcase.! !
I love my job; it really is NEVER dull and I truly believe in PQA and what is offers to our students, there isn't anything else like it out there on the market. Having separate Musical Theatre and Comedy and Drama classes really allows the students to hone their skills and learn the history, theory and background of the practical work they are being taught. By having a class dedicated to Film and TV, that not only teaches screen acting but how to make a film itself, from pre to post production, PQA really is up to date with the business and relevant to the opportunities available to young performers today.
Whether performing is innate in their bones or just a fun hobby, so long as your child is enthusiastic and eager to learn, PQA Bristol welcomes them to come and join in to make new friends and learn new skills!
