Portchester Community School


Portchester Community School is a medium-sized, forward thinking 11-16 Community School and enjoys a good reputation locally.

We are a 'good' school and are very proud of our pupils and their achievements.

Within the school we have a resourced provision for physically disabled students who are integrated fully into the life of the school, which brings a richness and variety to the curriculum and adds to our extensive after school provision.  As a community school we also have a nursery and a pre-school on site, and we are the providers of elderly day care.

The school also continues to pride itself on its caring ethos and is widely recognised for its Rights, Respect and Responsibility (RRP) work.  Our community engagement work has been a powerful vehicle at the school for promoting positive relationships and cultural awareness.  Many students have had exceptional opportunities to travel and engage on new and exciting experiences both in the UK and abroad.
