Have your say

GIRLS from Portsmouth High School’s class of 2015 finished the year in style.

Students from the school in Kent Road, Portsmouth, were invited to a cocktail party at chair of governor’s Anne McMeehan-Roberts’ house.

The next day the girls celebrated with a leavers’ ball, where each student was presented with sterling silver daffodil necklaces as a memento of their time at the school.

Former head girl Ellie Webb said: ‘I have a feeling of great gratitude to the school – it has taught me so much.

‘The staff taught me to believe in myself, be committed, courageous, confident and composed.’

During the girls’ time at the school, they were involved in helping raise more that £9,000 for the mental health charity MINE UK.
