The Portsmouth
Grammar School

Welcome to The Portsmouth Grammar School, a happy and vibrant independent school located in the historic heart of Portsmouth and only a few minutes’ walk from the Solent.

The support our pupils experience at PGS and the challenges they encounter have a shared purpose:  that each individual should be happy and successful, in that order.  In the spirit of our founder, Dr William Smith, we seek to provide excellence in all areas of school life and encourage our girls and boys to think not only about where they will be at 18 but where they aspire to be at 25.  Portsmouth is, after all, a city concerned with destinations.

If you would like to find out more about what makes this such a happy and outstanding family school please click here to view our school film or do contact us to arrange a personal tour. We look forward to welcoming you.

James Priory, Headmaster
