P7 Transition

Welcome to Portobello High School and to this P7 Transition page within our website. On this page you find a growing collection of videos which aim to respond the many questions we received through our P7 transition survey, we had a fantastic response and we want to thank everyone for taking the time to complete the survey. 

As well as the videos and virtual tour found below, we also plan to use this section of the website to keep you updated on information as we progress towards your high school start in August. We are very much looking forward to getting to know you. In the meantime stay safe and take care.
