Dear Parents/Carers, This has been another busy and productive term at Neville Lovett. Focus remains on our 3R’s of Respect, Resilience and Responsibility to enable them to achieve ‘Beyond Expectations’. I held a Year 7 Parents Coffee morning which was well attended. Governors spent two days working with the school leadership on developing strategies for the school. Year 12 students returned to receive their Certificates which were presented by Mark Hoban, MP. The School Council visited the Houses of Parliament. Strong links have been formed with the Education Business Partnership. Our Standards of teaching continue to rise. Revision sessions have taken place for those taking their GCSEs. Mock Exams have been taken by our students. Funding has been obtained from Hampshire County Council to refurbish two of our DT rooms.
