The Portsmouth Academy provides an education to our students not just to support their academic progress but to develop them to grow into self-reflective learners who have the knowledge and skills to become valuable members of any community.

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.
