We are extremely pleased to announce that our GCSE results (subject to final verification) show that 63% of students at Lister Community School achieved the headline target of 5A*-Cs including English and Maths. This is the fifth year running that results have risen at this school, which is an exceptional achievement. Lister’s Science results have also risen dramatically this year with around 90% of students achieving 2 good GCSEs in Science.
“I am delighted that the success story continues for our students and staff” said Headteacher Anthony Wilson. “Everyone has worked very hard, and I know that our students and staff could not have done any more. This is another big step forward for the school. We are determined to offer an absolutely world-class education, and all the improvements we have made are now showing through. We will keep working hard because our fantastic students deserve the very best. We have an outstanding and dedicated staff, who are great role models for our students, and I know we will keep on improving”.
Results have risen dramatically, from 38% in 2010, to 54% in 2014 and have now gone up by another 9%. The proportion of students achieving A and A* grades has also risen again, with some outstanding individual success stories.
The school is also celebrating the success of many of its recent ex-students, with exceptional results at A-level from ex-Lister students Zakir and Akif progressing to Queen Mary’s and UCL respectively!
