From 1830 to 1985, HMS Excellent was the RN Gunnery School. Originally on old ships based at Whale Island, Portsmouth, it moved ashore in 1891 to become a "stone frigate". It was recommissioned in 1994 following the closure of the old HMS Phoenix, school of Fire Fighting and Damage Control, in nearby Tipner and Horsea Island.[
