A unique setting in the local area
Portsmouth High Prep and Pre-School are located in a beautiful garden setting in the heart of Southsea offering plenty of space for girls to play, run and explore.
Girls have many opportunities to explore the wider grounds including a wooded area, a vegetable and flower garden where they can grow their own plants, and a large grass area with play equipment. There are also tennis courts and an all-weather sports pitch on site.
Early years’ classes are housed in a light and spacious purpose-built part of the school, opened by the author Michael Morpurgo in 2005. Classrooms are well-equipped ensuring the very best opportunities for learning and purposeful play. The Nursery classroom opens into an outside space with a soft safety surface and play equipment which is separate from the rest of the school. There are many opportunities for girls to explore the wider grounds during forest school lessons and when the classroom moves outdoors as part of the innovative explorer teaching programme.
