Headteacher Gary Lewis paid tribute to Mrs Smith, he said: “Angela has given more than 30 years service to Gordano School and is known for her kindness, as much as her skills as a pastoral leader. A generation of young people in Portishead will have benefited from her support and guidance and we all wish her an exciting and fulfilling retirement.”
