Visit our Virtual Open Day

Where girls learn without limits


In normal times we would be welcoming visitors through our gates for a full open day experience with activities on offer, places to explore and the chance to meet current pupils and staff. 

Instead, on this page, you will find a wealth of information and videos giving you a taste of what life at Portsmouth High School is like. Listen to Sixth Formers Annalee and Anisa as they talk about opportunities at the Senior School and Sixth Form. Tour our Prep and Pre-School with Head Girl Arabella and meet current pupils in our ‘Meet the Girls’ video.

We are delighted to feature alumna, Ellie Webb (class of 2015), who looks back on her time at Portsmouth High and how the school prepared her for life beyond the school gates. Last, but not least, get lost in our stunning 360º Virtual Tour which will take you behind many doors across the school.

Visit us in person
Making a decision about the best school for your daughter is very important and being able to visit a prospective school is a vital part of that decision making process. For this reason we are offering personal 1:1 socially distanced tours which allow us to tailor the experience to the needs and interests of every family. These take place out of normal school hours to help keep everyone safe in these unusual times. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to book your place on the next available date.
