Forensic Science Trail Open Morning | Portsmouth High School

Forensic Science Trail Open Morning

Saturday 10 June 10am to 12 noon

Be a detective for a morning and enjoy some real hands-on science to help solve a mystery at Portsmouth High Junior School for girls. Gather your scientific evidence to solve the crime—all will be revealed at the end of the trail.

Activities are tailored to children of different ages and are suitable for Pre- Schoolers through to Year 6. The trail includes fingerprint analysis, chromatography to analyse ink dye, microscopic examination of fibres, creating and analysing real footprint impressions and the chance to pilot a drone into a potentially hazardous crime scene.

There will be an opportunity to speak to the Headmaster and staff and find out more about what an education at Portsmouth High Junior School has to offer your daughter to give her a head start during the early years of her school life.

Booking is desirable but not essential either by completing the online form below or by telephoning Mrs Fergie Cox on 023 9282 4916.

What current parents and pupils say...

Pre-School parent
A calm oasis in the city with so much to offer… The staff are so warm and friendly and have always shown a genuine interest in us as parents and our daughter which has made the transition into Pre-School very easy.

When my daughter joined in September she was really shy. Through the nurturing and patience of her teachers she has developed into a much more sociable and bubbly girl. She loves the outdoor play and forest school activities, looks forward to French and music classes and is developing her reading and writing skills with great enthusiasm.

Alex, Year 6
My time at Portsmouth High Junior School has made me more confident in myself and has pushed me to achieve more than I imagined possible. It has made me go for things that I wouldn’t have gone for and made me try new things. The school has made me realise that anything is possible if you try hard. I have made friends that will stay with me forever.

Jemima, Year 6
Portsmouth High School has prepared me to be more confident, say my ideas and work my hardest at every subject and not to be afraid to ask a teacher for help.
