School Information

Welcome from all of the staff and children at ListerSchool. We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and are able to get a taste of what our school can offer. Our website is changing daily and weekly, so please come back and see us soon.





Lister School is administered by Service Children's Education (SCE) and provides education for the children of service personnel. Our school is situated in Wentworth Barracks, Herford and serves 1 (UK) Armoured Division and the Signals Regiment of the British Army. The vast majority of our pupils on roll are from British service families and civilian employees attached to the military community.





Our main school occupies a large site with good sized classrooms on two floors and separate facilities including a gymnasium, hall / dining room, ICT suite and other spare rooms. Outside, separate playgrounds are supplemented by an enclosed ball park and spacious areas for environmental study.





Our school provides a good variety of learning opportunities for pupils. The attitudes, behaviour and personal development of children are our particular strengths. Academic standards are in line with English national standards, and expectations are that children will continue to meet and exceed set targets. Our SAT results in Year 6 consistently exceed national average in England & Wales.
