The Nursery School at Portsmouth High is a leading independent nursery in Portsmouth and welcomes children into a warm and inclusive environment which always puts their well-being first. The Nursery is a Pre-School where the seeds of a life-long love of learning are first sown and curiosity and creativity are encouraged. The safe and happy environment ensures your daughter will have the very best start to her education in preparation for entry into Reception Class.

Set in the extensive grounds of our Junior School in the heart of Southsea, the Pre-School is based in a light and


modern building with access to a large wooded garden, a real oasis in an inner city environment, offering plenty of space for girls to play and explore.

Pre-School teachers are highly qualified and will get to know and understand your daughter. They will ensure her first steps taken in school are happy ones with exciting new things to try and new places to explore. Portsmouth High Pre-School offers an outstanding start for girls from the term of their third birthday (rising 3) up until they join Reception Class.

We preferred Portsmouth High Nursery because it was a more personal environment. We feel our daughter has become more confident and independent and she was given much more individual time in the Nursery.
