Welcome to The Performance Academy Drama & Theatre Schools


About Us

We are thrilled to offer a full, varied timetable covering each area of the arts.

With classes for all ages, all levels and beginners welcome, we cater for all young performers.

Take part in and enjoy our acting academy, musical theatre masterclass, singing tuition, show production courses, LAMDA exam classes, specialist guest workshops and more! We run weekly classes that follow the school calendar as well as exciting holiday courses, outreach programmes and workshops for nurseries, schools and businesses. TPA, opened in 2008 and now in its eleventh year is accredited by Club SL. We have an established reputation of providing fun filled classes and performing professional show productions.

We have classes for all ages from 2.5 years- adults. Here at TPA we don’t believe in auditioning students to join our schools. We believe that every student has talent and it is our job to grow pupil’s confidence levels, stretch imaginations, teach and enhance performance skills and spread our love and passion for Performing arts. No matter what level our students begin at, our team work to bring out the best in every pupil.

Our students currently appear in many advertising campaigns, television programmes, perform at live events & work performing in theatre projects and plays. Many of our students have gone on to study at drama colleges throughout the UK.

Our classes are based across Glasgow south side & within Bathgate theatre and we have classes running 7 days a week.

Our classes are taught by our professional teaching team. All staff members have a passion for performing arts that they wish to instil in others. All tutors hold BA Hons/ MA degrees in performing arts or in their chosen teaching subjects. All tutors are PVG checked prior to working with us. All classes also have class assistants within the classes to encourage participation and to help all students gain the most out of their time with us.

We strive to maintain the highest standards of teaching to help our students 'learn skills for life'.
