Principal’s Welcome

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school website. Lisneal College is a caring, progressive and pupil centred school, and we value greatly the excellent relationship we have with the local and wider community. Lisneal College is proud to be a non-selective post-primary school and we welcome pupils of all ability levels to study with us. We are an inclusive school and we firmly believe that every young person should be provided with the highest standards of education available.

We have high expectations of our pupils and the Lisneal College teaching and non-teaching staff are committed to providing high quality learning and teaching experiences for all of our pupils. Our school passionately believes in the power of partnership and we actively encourage our pupils to embrace the wealth of experiences, knowledge and skills available within our community to help them achieve their potential and become positive contributors to society.

It is my strong belief that young people achieve success when they are happy, supported and challenged to be the best that they can be. A combination of excellent pastoral care, a relevant and inclusive curriculum and high quality teaching and learning ensures that each young person who attends our school is provided with the opportunity to achieve his or her best.

The partnership between staff, pupils and parents is vital to the success of our students and we work very hard to build and sustain excellent working relationships with parents and guardians. Teamwork is key to raising achievement and we must recognise that each of us has a responsibility for ensuring that our young people are prepared for success. It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to promote the value of education and encourage a sense of pride in our school. By doing so, pupils recognise the importance of working hard in school and are best placed to achieve their potential.

Our school website provides a snap-shot of life at Lisneal College and I sincerely hope that by browsing through the various menus you will gain a strong sense of what it means to be a pupil of Lisneal College.

Mr M Allen,
