Welcome to Pre-School

A bespoke environment nestled in the grounds of The Portsmouth Grammar School, our Pre-School offers outstanding care for girls and boys from age 2½ to 4, supporting them to become confident and happy children who are active, independent learners.

We are open from 7.30am-6.00pm daily during term time. A choice of sessions is available daily, including ‘all day’ care. Hot lunches are also available for children, or you may provide a packed lunch.

We prepare children for entry into Reception, with pupils enjoying regular access to the many facilities in the Junior School including a library, dining room, theatre and hall, which we regularly use for music, gym and dance sessions.

The PGS Pre-School offers a stimulating, purpose-built environment. Classrooms are bright and spacious, supported by the very best in teaching and technological resources. The Pre-School building itself provides both indoor and outdoor play space solely for our very youngest pupils.

Our professionally qualified staff are experienced in giving individualised care, recognising and nurturing each child’s strengths alongside supporting their development. The Pre-School Lead is a qualified teacher and works closely with the Head of Pre-School and Infants.
