Senior School Taster Day | Portsmouth High School

Senior School Taster Day

Portsmouth High School is an independent school for girls located in the heart of Southsea in Hampshire which has been successfully educating girls since 1882. The school has an outstanding reputation for academic success and is part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, the leading provider of independent education for girls in the country.

Portsmouth High welcomes girls from Pre-school through to the Sixth Form and identifies strengths, guides enthusiasm and unlocks the potential of every girl.

A powerful learning environment the focus on girls is reflected in the design of spaces, the use of digital technology, a challenging and rewarding curriculum and the way in which pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning.

A safe and happy place the school is grounded in a culture of wellbeing, trust and respect of oneself and others. Academic achievement is set within the broader development of the whole person – social, cultural, spiritual and physical as well as intellectual.

An excellent preparation for the next phase at every stage the Pre-School and Junior School provide secure foundations for Senior School; the Senior School provides a broad and balanced education that prepares girls to specialise at A Level; the Sixth Form provides a perfect bridge to higher study and the world of work.

Academic excellence – Each year pupils celebrate impressive public examination results at both GCSE and A Level and we credit our success to diligent girls and well-qualified teachers. Furthermore the girls study highly regarded traditional courses which gives them a firm foundation for academic excellence. Girls leave us for respected university courses and go on to excel in a range of careers.
