We are very proud of our Academy, which offers a wonderful education; full of opportunities for girls to aspire and achieve. We are unique in Portsmouth at specialising in supporting young girls to raise their aspirations, develop their full potential and become successful members of their community.

We all learn best when we are happy and feel valued; in a single sex girls school we can ensure all girls feel part of a caring and nurturing environment where our girls have a sense of fulfilment and experience no barriers to their learning.

Our motto; Aspire and Achieve, reflects our mission to ensure all our girls can thrive and achieve their best. Girls do benefit from being educated in an all-female environment. Our experience and national research shows that girls will:

  • Achieve a higher self-esteem and greater confidence
  • Feel positive and work well together as a community
  • Develop high aspirations and achieve higher results and progress
  • Enjoy their learning and feel they have no barriers to their ambition
