By Car

Being centrally located, the school is very easy to drive to.  Simply come in to Portsmouth on the M275 and follow signs for the Historic Waterfront, then for the Historic Dockyard.  Drive past Portsmouth Harbour Station (on your right), and go straight on under the railway bridge.  Turn left at the junction, then bear right at the roundabout and you are right outside our famous arch.  There is metered parking available all along the High Street and nearby.
