A warm welcome to Lever Park,

Our aims here at Lever Park are to provide an environment where our pupils are supported to be “the best they can be.” We walk every step of the way with our pupils, guiding, challenging but most importantly celebrating every achievement.

Our aim is to inspire every young person to acquire the knowledge, skills and experience necessary, both inside and outside the traditional classroom environment, to fulfil their true potential. Developing self-esteem, confidence and resiliency will be major goals for us and preparing our young people to enjoy worthwhile and fulfilling lives back in their own communities.

Our vision is based on key principles:
Re-direction, fresh start and re-integration.
Raising pupil aspiration and ambition
Behaviour modification, social and emotional support and alternative methodologies will be key strategies

I look forward to meeting you all and I look forward to an exciting time and bright future for Lever Park.
