Alderman Joseph Whitcombe, a School Governor in the 19th Century, generously provided scholarships for fatherless boys.

Alfred Summers was a popular long-serving Head of Mathematics between 1894-1926 who also served as Second Master from 1905. He also catalogued the school library, oversaw the publication of the Portmuthian and organised charity concerts for sick children.

Frank Privett was a successful local builder who became Portsmouth’s first Lord Mayor, a Member of Parliament and Chairman of the school’s governing body. In the 1920s he was instrumental in acquiring and renovating the Officers’ block of the Cambridge Barracks enabling the school to expand and thrive.

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.
