What is it like to be a pupil at Portsmouth High Prep School?
Girls in Year 5 and 6 were asked to produce a free piece of writing about what it was like to be at Portsmouth High Prep School. Here is a small selection of their words:
At Dovercourt we all possess the freedom to find our own path in life, not to be restricted by someone else’s tracks. We have our own opinions voiced at the school council, listened to and immediately answered by the best suited and well thought through response.
I’ve been at Portsmouth High Prep School since nursery and have found it an inspiring place to grow up. What makes PHS a wonderful atmosphere is definitely the people. My teachers encourage me and help me to understand difficult questions.
I have made friendships that I will keep for the rest of my life, as well as helping new girls to feel welcome and become a part of the community. I can’t imagine life without PHS.
Moving up to Year 2 I got my first fountain pen,
I remember writing letters again and again,
Egg and spoon races and fun during Sports Day,
I burst out laughing when my egg rolled away.
The teachers all have our best interests at heart and are ready to give the appropriate help needed in any area. Being a part of Dovercourt, we work as a team and are always dependable, supportive and enthusiastic. That is why I love Dovercourt.
So my final year in the Prep School with a trip to Harry Potter,
There is also the play that is called St. Tabitha,
I look back at my time now I am age ten,
Oh how I would love to go back and do it all again.
