Congratulations to Shelley for holding their position as inter-house champions. Shelley have dominated inter-house since September. Well done to all other houses. Here is the ranking for Inter House III.
Congratulations Shelley House and well done for demonstrating excellent teamwork.
Twelve very keen readers visited the Natural History Museum in South Kensington at the end of the last term as a reward for their achievements in Accelerated Reader. After a tube journey to the Museum, and taking every opportunity to read, students visited the Cocoon Gallery where they were able to see scientists at work and view some of the millions of specimens held in the Museum. A quick visit to the dinosaurs was followed by the customary pizza, before more reading on the tube journey home. Congratulations to all the students involved: several members of the public commented on how they were a credit to the school.
On Thursday 30th March, Year 9 Theatre School went to Theatre Royal Stratford East to perform their version of Tim Etchell’s ‘Status Update’ in the National Theatre Connections Festival 2017. We started the day with a technical rehearsal and then performed to an audience of around 250 people in the evening. A fantastic time was had by all, with students describing the day as ‘fun’, ‘exhilarating’ and ‘really great’.
It is a close battle between Shelley, Hawking and King houses for Inter House points. Only one day of play left who will shine. Here’s to all the houses. Results will be shared on the first day back after the break. Good luck to all the houses.
Last Saturday, our Lister computing scholars went to programme with Imperial University students. Students were able to programme through robotics. A massive well done to Ashraful Islam and team for coming first in the Challenge. It was an enjoyable day and a valuable experience for our students.

On Friday 17th March, the PE Department took 12 students from Fitness Club and specialist PE to compete in the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships at Lee Valley Athletics Centre. There were over 2500 students in attendance from across the country, and as well as competing in rowing races, students experienced London Youth Rowing’s festival of sport, and took part in activities such as an outdoor climbing wall, laser tag, cycling, basketball and many more. Our best result in the rowing races was in the Junior Relay, where Andriy, Fuquan, Samir and Nazmul rowed 2000m as as team and came 36th out of 75 schools. In the year 9 individual race (rowing continuously for 4 minutes), Andriy, came 94th out of 211 students – so a big well done to him! It was a fantastic day and all students received merits for their excellent representation of Lister, and very much deserved this opportunity by being regular attendees of Fitness Club after school on Thursdays.
Lister students competed in the indoor cricket tournament at Newvic College, which had 9 teams participating. Lister won their group games and reached the final of the tournament. Unfortunately, Lister lost in the final to Brampton in a very hard fought contest. This was a great achievement and the boys did the school proud finishing with a silver medal. Well done boys!
The team included: Mohammed Haroon, Anil Sadekin, Het Patel, Usman Yusuf, Jahanzeb iqbal, Ahmed Khan, Youvan Patel
Last week 9 students from year 7, 8, 9 and 10 who attend Girl’s Club regularly played in singles and doubles Badminton matches against St Angelas School. All matches had very close scores with Andreia in year 8 winning her game! All students received certificates for their participation and should be proud of their commitment to Girl’s Club. If any students would like these opportunities please attend Girl’s Club on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime in the Sports Hall with Miss Maxwell and Miss Moore, praises will be awarded to new students who attend!
