Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to The Portsmouth Academy. We hope our website will give you a flavour of the exciting education we offer. We warmly invite you to come and see us in action, to truly gain a sense of our school.

The Portsmouth Academy provides an education to our students not just to support their academic progress but to develop them to think deeply about their thinking, be their best self and to have the knowledge, tools and skills in order to shape their success.

The Portsmouth Academy has an extremely dedicated staff team who are proud to work in a school situated in the heart of its community and which also has community at its heart. Our goal here is that every child who wears our uniform feels a sense of belonging and pride, that it means something positive for them to be a part of their school and that they feel proud of their community both within the school gates and beyond.

We believe strongly in nurturing children throughout their time at The Portsmouth Academy to build positive habits, develop an awareness of their strengths and support them in developing areas they would like to improve. We work with them so that they are aspirational and ready for their next steps and, most importantly, understand their role and place both within their local community and beyond.

The thinking school approach to education is unique to this secondary school in this city and we believe that it genuinely transforms the life chances of our children, not just because of the excellent outcomes our students achieve but also as it teaches them the critical thinking skills they need to be resilient in an ever changing world.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Portsmouth Academy.

Please contact the school reception to find out about our open events, to book a tour, or indeed to book a meeting with myself.
