On Wednesday 10 February Treloar’s students and staff were delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Lord Mountevans and Lady Mayoress Baroness Mountevans to the Holybourne campus. Accompanying the Lord Mayor were the Sheriffs as well as Masters, Prime Wardens and Deputy Masters of 27 Livery Companies. This annual visit is an opportunity to celebrate Treloar’s heritage and link back to its founding in 1908 by then Lord Mayor Sir William Purdie Treloar and to thank those attending for their support.

Visitors were given the opportunity to tour the campus and were able to visit classes in session where they learned, amongst other things some sign language and saw first-hand how our wonderful students live and learn. The Lord Mayor and his party were also able to visit both Evans and Gauvain House and donned their hard hats for the tour of Gauvain House, which is in the process of being redeveloped and, once completed, will provide a state of the art accommodation along the lines of communal living.

After lunch the guests were treated to an afternoon music performance by Treloar School students.
