Students and colleagues at Nugent House School in Billinge were honoured to welcome the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside for a special visit on Thursday 30 September.

During the Lord Lieutenant’s time at the school, he visited the primary education department, meeting the younger students and learning about the provision in place for them.

He later had a meeting with older students from the secondary education provision before meeting with the Interim Headteacher, Andy Howard, and Nugent’s Deputy CEO and Chair of Governors for the School, Jo Henney.

Andy Howard said – “We are so proud of the school and its aim to be a voice for the voiceless and a place of safety for some of the most disadvantaged young people in the region. It was a privilege to show the Lord Lieutenant around and discuss with him the amazing work our colleagues here do on a daily basis.”

Jo Henney added – “It was a pleasure to receive the Lord Lieutenant and share the impactful work that the Nugent House team have undertaken recently, especially during the pandemic where there was minimal disruption to children’s education. Everyone at the school is proud of our students and their continuing development.”
