Charlotte – Head Girl
I joined Portsmouth High School in Year 7 and am now taking English, mathematics and history in the Sixth Form.
I am hoping to study history at university. My fascination for history encouraged me to volunteer at Fishbourne Roman Palace during school holidays, and has explained why I like period dramas so much. I am also hoping to go travelling in order to see some of the amazing historical sites for myself.
I run the Year 7 to 9 Drama Club with my fellow drama scholars and have thrown myself into the inter-house plays. I have also been a part of Rounders Club, Book Club and even Russian Club during my time at the school. My favourite co-curricular activities I have been the school musicals because I have made some brilliant friends across all year groups.
This year the Head Girl Team have chosen to fund raise for The Elizabeth Foundation, which supports children with hearing disabilities. I’m definitely looking forward to the year ahead of me for raising money for this brilliant cause.
I love Portsmouth High School because it has helped me gain confidence in myself and the teachers are always so supportive. I am sure I have made friends here which I will keep for life.
