I joined Portsmouth High School in September 2017 and am now at the end of my second year here
Coming from a small, mixed junior school, it was a big step joining Portsmouth High School. However, I can truly say that the staff and atmosphere made it a very comfortable move, and immediately made everyone feel welcome.
I visited the school on a number of occasions, both on open days and taster days, and I was really looking forward to the many aspects of school life such as food technology and the variety in sporting activities. Portsmouth High has definitely impressed me with the huge range of opportunities on offer. A good example is the variety of co-curricular clubs. From cupcake decorating to ‘mindful meanders’, there is something to capture the interest of each and every pupil.
Personally, I believe that taking part in clubs helps you to learn new skills, opens a wider array of opportunities, and encourages you to mix with other pupils throughout the school.
Overall, Portsmouth High School has supported me in every way throughout my two years here and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a school with a warm environment, and an academic flair.
