The whole school community has been saddened to hear of the death of Jill Kirk. 

Jill worked for decades in Newham and established the deaf support department in 1997.  She was a dedicated teacher and advocate for Deaf students and her contribution to Deaf education in Newham leaves a lasting legacy. She was also a very popular and supportive colleague, and a warm and caring tutor and mentor to many young people at Lister.

The school will be organising an event later this term to celebrate Jill’s contribution to education in Newham, and further information will be shared on the Lister website and please feel free to contact, if you have any queries.
