Lister Community School 

Lister Community School is a large, 11-16 comprehensive school.  We are a mixed school that was judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2013 and has just celebrated its 6th consecutive year of record breaking exam results.

We are determined to build on our most recent Ofsted judgement and continue our journey to becoming ‘Outstanding’ in the next two years.  Our motto is “always aiming for excellence’. 

An exceptional school: Our vision is a world class education for young people in Newham. Lister is a large 11-16 comprehensive school at the heart of its community. Our November 2013 Ofsted report spoke of the school’s ‘consistent focus on raising the quality of teaching and developing a culture of learning and high aspirations across the school’. Recognised as one of the most improved schools in the country (DfE, January 2014) this is reflected in our sustained drive to become an Outstanding school with our Progress 8 at +0.47 and 5(A*-C) including English & Maths at 66%, the sixth consecutive year this has increased.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  This appointment will be conditional on successful pre-employment and enhanced DBS checks.
