Welcome to Portsmouth High Junior School
Portsmouth High Junior school provides a stimulating and exciting learning environment where each girl is encouraged and motivated to extend her knowledge of the world and her understanding of herself.
We strive for the highest standards of teaching and learning, developing your daughters' skills, potential and understandings that they will need to thrive and move onto the next stage of their learning journey, into the senior school, university and beyond.
We encourage the girls to be rich questioners and critical thinkers in an ever changing world where they will have the resourcefulness and confidence to stand up for what they believe in. Each girl is unique and she will be treated as an individual with consistent care and given the courage to reach for the stars. High order thinking and a willingness to challenge through rich questioning is the order of the day.
Our girls enjoy a breadth of experience with opportunities for sport, music, drama, the arts and participation in an exciting programme of extra-curricular activities.
All of this contributes to a school where girls are cherished and challenged with expert teaching and encouraged to step outside their comfort zones in order to produce results that are both extraordinary and outstanding.
Please come and see us in action to see what our girls have to say about their happy, vibrant school.
