The Salterns Academy Trust was formed when ALNS became a converter academy in April 2014 as a means of developing ever closer working relationships with our primary and secondary partner schools.
Admiral Lord Nelson School is an oversubscribed 11-16 school built on a greenfield site on the eastern side of Portsmouth in 1997, breaking new ground at the time with its unique environmentally sensitive and educationally inspiring design. We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School, a lead member of the Portsmouth Teaching School Alliance and the school has a national reputation for its innovative work on curriculum and leadership development. In March 2011, OFSTED judged us as being a good school which provides outstanding care, guidance and support for its students and promotes their personal development very well.
ALNS is a very inclusive school in which all our students successfully access a broad and balanced curriculum. Achievement is high: in 2015 69% of students achieved A*-C in English and Maths, 64% of students achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and Maths and 67% of students achieved five or more A*-C grades.
