I have had a brilliant time at school since Year 6.  I have enjoyed both the prep and senior school experiences.  I’ve just had the best teaching and been so fortunate in everything Portsmouth High School has offered.  I enjoyed being Head Girl and with such a strong year group it was hard work but made easier but everyone working together.

I came to Portsmouth High School Sixth Form having spent a year at Havant College. I feel it was the best decision and it has been a fun and exciting two years. It is amazing to have finally got to where I have wanted to get to and all the teachers have been so supportive. I am going out for breakfast now! Charlotte’s father, Mr Foster added; ‘Portsmouth High School has built up Charlotte’s confidence while keeping her grounded. We are delighted.’

I joined PHS in Year 7 and this last year has been pretty hectic! Combining being Deputy Head Girl with A Levels has been hard but I have had lots of support from teachers and friends.  Sixth Form has definitely been the highlight of my time here. I am off now for breakfast and some retail therapy!
