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 1pm 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.

At Brighton West, we pride ourselves on our family-friendly vibe. Students are welcomed and made to feel part of a community from the outset, encouraged to be the best they can be, build confidence, learn new skills, and make friends for life. Our PQA motto - “be yourself, be amazing” - very much reflects this ethos.

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 for a chat (contact details below) and we can arrange a visit to the Academy. Alternatively, you can request a brochure or enrol online now.
