At Lister, we are very proud of the achievements of our Alumni. 

Whether they are succeeding in a range of careers, studying at Russell Group Universities, or currently at one of the excellent Sixth Forms or Colleges in the area, we are keen for our current students to learn from their inspiring example.

Even students who have only recently left Lister can show the potential pathways that our current students can pursue.
