About Northern Parade Schools

Northern Parade Schools is a non-denominational County School, maintained by the Director of Education for Portsmouth City Council. It is a school for boys and girls aged from ages 4 - 11 years.

The school was built in the 1930's and is situated on Portsea Island, just to the north of Portsmouth City Centre. The two schools share the same site and are now Federated, working together as a virtual Primary.

The School’s logo is used to remind all the people connected with Northern Parade Schools that every member of our community is eager to learn, whatever their age or role within the School.
