Reception Class enjoy a beautiful garden at Portsmouth High School

Space to play…

Ancient trees, a vegetable garden, wild flowers and a two storey Grecian-style folly set into a sunken dell, provide the perfect backdrop for girls to create a whole host of imaginative role play scenarios.

The Prep School has a large outdoor space providing an excellent start for the girls’ first physical education lessons, matches, outdoor lessons and a variety of events. There is a grass area for sport together with netball and tennis courts. A new all-weather sports pitch has just been installed in the grounds providing another great environment for sport, whatever the weather. The girls also enjoy the wonderful large wooden climbing frame on the lawn giving excellent opportunities to develop coordination. Girls soon develop confidence on the monkey bars and ride down the poles.
