A very warm welcome to St William of York Roman Catholic Primary School in Great Lever, Bolton. We aim to provide the highest quality of Catholic education and welcome families, parish and the wider community, showing respect for everyone. Working together in this loving and caring environment we encourage everyone to reach their full potential.

Following our Ofsted Inspection in May 2012 the inspectors wrote that "they were impressed by the excellent behaviour, politeness, friendliness and hard work" of pupils and that they are "growing up into sensible, caring and thoughtful young people that school, parents and carers can be proud of". They also said that children are "making good progress because teachers are good at helping them to learn".

We hope you like our website, if there is anything else you would find useful please let us know through the 'Contact Us' page.
