Welcome from Mrs H-Chapman, Head Teacher

We are a two-form entry primary school and nursery, situated in the heart of Portsmouth, close to the sea.

We are named after Hertha Ayrton - a British engineer, mathematician, physicist and inventor, born in Portsea. The 'arc lamp', providing street lighting, was among many of her inventions and accomplishments

Our children are wonderful and we are here to help them be the best that they can be and to ensure they flourish at primary school. It's important for us to provide our students with the neccessary skills, knowledge, attitude, and understanding for their future - secondary school, university or the career of their choice in later life. It all starts right here!

Our priorities are to ensure all children are safe, happy and learning well at all times.
