At King's Academy, students work with industry professionals to develop skills in all areas of the performing arts industry including acting, singing and dancing.
Each year in June, our academy students perform a full-length play or musical in front of a welcome audience of friends and family. These well-received productions provide students with the opportunity to perform live and to apply the new skills they've learnt throughout the year. They also help them to build experience and confidence of performing in public.
All our sessions are run by industry professionals who not only teach the the skills necessary to succeed in the performing arts sector but also encourage our students to become well-rounded individuals. They strive to get the very best out of our young performers whilst encouraging a fun, safe and friendly environment.
As well as making leaps in their drama, singing, stage combat, comedy and dance abilities, we find our students often become more self-aware and delight in discovering new hidden talents within themselves.
We strive to nurture a willingness to take on new challenges, whatever they might be, and to help build the confidence and enthusiasm needed to excel beyond education.
Here at King's Academy, we make the most out of our annual performance by using it to enter students for Rock School Examinations in Musical Theatre so they can gain a qualification each academic year. The certificates are not only a great achievement for the students and a reward for their hard work and commitment, but they are extremely useful when considering UCAS applications in later years.
We proudly launch King's Academy SENIORS! For students aged 12 - 17 years old. Sessions will run Saturdays in QE term time from 13.30-16.30.

It is with great pleasure that we launch the King’s Theatre season for 23/34
Our aim this year is to make live performance accessible to everyone – to our amazing QE family and friends but also to the wider community.
The King’s Theatre is a venue that celebrates the work of QE students but also professionals from around the country and its doors are open to all.
There is something for everyone: family theatre, live music, open air performances, QE student work and a mini festival for the youngest theatregoers amongst us.
