Rachel | Portsmouth High School


A levels – Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry


I have been at Portsmouth High School since Year 7 and have met some amazing people and had some amazing experiences here.

Some of my favourites have been the Charity Week Fashion Show, Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, playing sport for the school, participating in concerts and getting involved with lunchtime clubs.

I know all my teachers well so they are ready to support and help me if I need it and the community here is very close, it is easy to make friends from all year groups. There is always something going on in school to get involved with, whatever your interests. We are spoilt for choice with clubs and activities. The Sixth Form house is a very relaxing and nice environment to work, cook or just chill out at break or lunchtimes.

Portsmouth High is part of the GDST which is great because it means you can connect with a large network of alumnae and compete in inter-school events. I have experienced this through athletics competitions and the quiz team. It means you can be part of a wider network without compromising the individuality that makes Portsmouth High School so great.
