Personal Development

We believe in empowering young minds to meet the world head-on.

At the heart of our mission lies the commitment to nurturing not only academic excellence but also personal development.

But what is personal development and why is it important?

Personal development means getting better at things as you grow up, like learning new stuff, being kind, and becoming the best you. It's like an adventure where our pupils can discover how amazing they can be. 

Below, you will find links to key areas of our website to provide you with an understanding of the personal development opportunities on offer at The Portsmouth Academy. 

At The Portsmouth Academy, we recognise that academic success alone is not enough to thrive in today's ever-changing world. That's why we place a strong emphasis on personal development alongside academic opportunities. We believe that nurturing well-rounded individuals equipped with essential life skills is paramount to young people to meet the world.
