There are many ways you can get involved in the life of the school and current students love to hear and learn from the experience of alumnae. If you would be interested in coming to the school to talk about your career, or helping out with careers talks then we would love to hear from you.
Please email Lucinda Webb firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 023 92 701617
Portsmouth High School girls in Year 9 and 10 were delighted to have the opportunity to take part in a Sustainable Fashion Workshop led by alumna, Madeleine Michell who left the school in 2014 and is currently in her final year in textile design at Leeds University.
The girls were given the opportunity to work with Madeleine and gain an insight into how the fashion industry works. Madeleine completed her industrial placement with top fashion/textile designer Mary Katrantzou and is looking at how garment production can be streamlined to cut waste in both materials and time, yet still allow for individuality in the end pieces.
Dr Abi Parnell
We were delighted to welcome back Dr Abi Parnell (Class of 1998) who returned to school in April 2016 to talk to the girls about a career in psychology. She inspired and enthused the Sixth Form A level students with her knowledge of the career progression both within the NHS and in private practice. Currently she is working with children, adolescents and their families who may be experiencing behavioural or emotional problems.
