Lord Mayor’s Reception – Wednesday 11th September 2019

Yesterday, the Lord Mayor, Councillor David Fuller and the Lady Mayoress, Mrs Leza Tremorin, held a formal reception (on behalf of the City of Portsmouth) so that he could thank all the staff, students, parents, Governors  and volunteers at Admiral Lord Nelson School for their excellent work over so many years that resulted in us being recognised as Creative School of the Year 2019 in the highly prestigious TES Awards in June.

In the Lord Mayor’s speech and those given by our CEO of our Academy Trust (Steven Labedz) and Hayden Taylor (our School Governor)  to all the local dignitaries and  members of our School community, Admiral Lord Nelson School was praised for its 25 year commitment to delivering a curriculum that is broad and balanced for all and that has always focussed on ensuring that all of our young people are empowered to develop creatively, not just in the performing arts and design subjects but across all aspects of school life.

Students, staff and Governors were treated to a rare opportunity to enjoy the delights of the Lord Mayors Banqueting Suite at the Guildhall and a lovely time was had by all! Thank you to the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress for their kindness and their warm hospitality.

Mrs Hardingham
