Dr William Smith was the physician to the garrison at Portsmouth and, having benefited from a grammar school education himself, left a legacy which enabled the school to be founded in Penny Street following his death in 1732.

Henry Hawkey was a popular long-serving teacher of Chemistry between 1906 and 1937, an Officer in the Officer Training Corps (now the CCF) and an outstanding soccer coach when soccer was the school’s winter game.

James Nicol was the school’s longest serving Headmaster (1893-1922). He built on Jerrard’s success, introducing the house and prefect systems and raised academic standards. He was popular, being described as kind, wise, scholarly and a gentleman.

Please consider making a gift to help increase bursary support for the brightest pupils.

Thanks to a generous donor, today every gift is being matched pound for pound so your gift is worth even more: if you donate £100 we receive £200.  But this only works for 36-hours, so whether you left PGS this year or 50 years ago, or you’re connected to us in another way, your gift will have its biggest impact today.
