The ‘Queen and her corgis’ celebrate the Platinum Jubilee at Portsmouth High Prep School

Pupils and staff at Portsmouth High Prep School wholeheartedly embraced celebrations for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

Pre-School launched the day of celebrations when they led the morning’s celebration assembly in a hall decked with the union jack flag. The whole school was decorated with bunting, each child in the school having designed an individual named piece in the theme of red, white and blue.

In celebration assembly the Queen was present with her corgis and each of the pre-school children took centre stage to tell the audience of parents, pupils and staff a fact about the royal family and the Jubilee celebrations.

The whole school later enjoyed a Jubilee picnic lunch in the prep school gardens sitting on the grass on a gloriously sunny and warm spring day, dancing to music and sharing fun and friendship together.

Assistant Head (Pastoral) Mrs Irvine-Capel said ‘It has been a wonderful day of celebrations. Pre-School did the whole school proud with their celebration assembly showing incredible confidence at such a young age. Children from all years have helped decorate the school and our Platinum Jubilee picnic at lunchtime was truly an occasion to remember in years to come.’
