About Lister Community School
Lister Community School is a large, 11-16 comprehensive school. We are a mixed school that maintained its ‘Good’ status by Ofsted in December 2018, https://www.lister.newham.sch.uk/our-schools/ofsted/ and continues to celebrate year on year 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’.
“Overall GCSE outcomes for pupils over the last three years have been consistently above national averages. Disadvantaged pupils make strong progress in line with their peers...behaviour and conduct of the pupils was very good. Pupils were courteous, articulate and willing to speak with inspectors...Pupils said that they enjoy school and value the wide range of opportunities they are given and talk warmly about the inclusive nature of the school...The school has a well-led hearing-impaired support department...progress of pupils with SEND was good because activities were planned to meet their needs. This was particularly evident for hearing-impaired pupils.” Ofsted December 2018.
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.
