Portsmouth High School is delighted to offer new art and drama scholarships at 11+ entry from September 2022.
Girls who are confident actors, performing at a higher standard than expected for a pupil of their age; or have an outstanding ability in art, are welcome to apply and should register their interest via the application form when applying for a place at the school. Successful applicants will be invited into school to audition or present their portfolio of artwork.
Scholarships and bursaries enable girls to realise their potential in an educational environment which might not always be accessible due to financial circumstances. Scholarships are awarded for outstanding academic merit and the prestige associated with their award opens the doors to new opportunities.
Our current Head Girl, Annalee, was awarded financial assistance in Year 7 and her father commented ‘Financial help with Annalee’s place really has changed her life forever. Being at Portsmouth High School has given her opportunities she would never have had elsewhere. She has excelled academically and in music, drama and sport. She has been able to go abroad and to meet new people through the GDST network. The school staff have supported and encouraged her development at every stage and now she is Head Girl. The family atmosphere of the school is a delight and Annalee is surrounded by a fantastic group of friends that will be her friends for life’.
Headmistress Jane Prescott said ‘The school is delighted to be able to offer new art and drama scholarships to girls looking at joining us in 2022. Portsmouth High School already has an enviable reputation for success in the creative arts and these new scholarships will enhance our provision further’.
