Lister headteacher Anthony Wilson said: “We are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year.

“Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto further education and study, and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future."

Following the cancellation of exams this year, grades were determined through a teacher assessment process, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards.
