Reading

A love of books is nurtured from an early age and staff listen to children read regularly.

Portsmouth High Prep School has its own dedicated library which the girls visit each week to choose interesting books, helped by the school’s librarian. This is in addition to their daily, individual phonics and reading undertaken in class.

The girls enjoy class reading time and they remain highly engaged when they are listening to stories and non-fiction texts throughout the school week.
