Sports Mark Gold!

What better way to round off a hugely successful year than with even more great news?

This year we completed the Sainsburys Sports Mark* application, which is a detailed process of analysing our sporting provision here at Admiral Lord Nelson School.  This ranks us nationally against other schools with regards to amount of in school and extra-curricular sport we do.  The results are in and…

we have achieved Sports Mark GOLD!

This is very rare and is the highest grading of certification we can get in sport and we are honestly elated!

This year we have done more than ever.  We entered all the local Portsmouth competitions performing consistently well and also qualified for five different Hampshire tournaments with our Football, Basketball, Volleyball and Hockey teams representing Portsmouth against other Hampshire schools.  Our sports leaders have also done us proud helping to provide sports opportunities for other children in the city.

It has been a fantastic year and as always thank you to all the parents, staff and students for your support with our ALNS sport!

Have a sporting and active summer (with plenty of time to relax too)!
