Year 8 triumph at the home of cricket Lords.

Having won the Newham indoor cricket tournament, Lister school made it to the Lords finals representing the borough of Newham, and they did the borough proud. Six teams travelled to Lords for a hard fought tournament. Lister won every game and looked very strong in particular Het and skipper Usman, who gave contributions throughout the tournament.

Lister made the final and narrowly missed out on the gold medal by 3 runs, the pupils did the school and borough proud coming second in the whole of London winning a silver medal.

Well done to the whole team!

During our recent BBC Ten Pieces Day, Year 7 students from Lister spent an hour and a half working with Chani and Toby mixing samples from the Ten Pieces tracks with hip hop / rock / pop / beats and other samples to create their own short pieces of music. Have a listen to three of our favourite remixes below!


Luisa – samples from ‘Night on Bare Mountain’


Adrijus – samples from ‘Zadok the Priest’ and ‘Ride of the Valkyries’


Bilal – samples from ‘Night on Bare Mountain’


If our Year 7 students can come up with tracks like this in just an hour and a half, imagine what you could do over the course of three weeks! We are looking forward to launching this new opportunity and hope you will join us for what promises to be a very exciting project!
