Performance Academy of Theatre Arts was established in July 2008 by Emma Lewis (Principal).  Opening week saw the academy welcoming twenty pupils.  That number has since grown to approximately 100 pupils in just eight years.  We are extremely proud of our success and reputation within the local area.  We pride ourselves on the high standard of training that we provide, as well as maintaining a friendly and fun environment for all our pupils and their families.


Pupils have appeared in many professional productions including pantomimes at The Central Theatre, Chatham.  Our competition team has only recently been established but members have already achieved success by winning a number of gold, silver and bronze medals as well highest marks and adjudicators choice awards. Past pupils have successfully gained places at reputable universities and colleges such as Bird College, enabling them to further their performing arts studies.
