Many thanks to former teacher Mr Mitchell for visiting our Yr13 Digital Imaging class during the week. During his visit he spoke about his successful career in photography and demonstrated how he uses his equipment to capture the moment. Mr Mitchell really inspired our students and we are very grateful for his time and effort.


Check out our pupils featured in the Londonderry Sentinel. The students climbed Muckish for Chest, Heart and Stroke and helped to raise almost £700. Once again Lisneal pupils show how kind and committed they are to helping others. Many thanks to Mr Ferguson for his support and dedication to our pupils. #WEARELISNEAL #proudaspunch


Pupils from 8R have recently learnt about diversity in society in their LLW Citizenship lessons. They have reflected upon their individuality and illustrated who they are in the form of words, symbols and images that they believe represent themselves as individuals.
Every pupil within #TeamLisneal is unique and we enjoy watching them grow and develop throughout their time with us. WEARELISNEAL


Our wonderful 10A English class had the opportunity to explore the world of the ‘HUMAN BOOK’ today. It definitely allowed them to consider the world and indeed life, living in other peoples’ shoes. This was an amazingly engaging event which has generated a lot of discussion already! Thanks to Roisin at The Holywell Trust for having the pupils and to Mrs Peoples for organising this trip. Active learning works!!


Our amazing 6th Form students Kirsteen, Emma, Emma-Jayne and Jenny are ready to rock the Lisneal College catwalk at our not to be missed fashion show. Our very own Cinderella, Marie, will also come to the ball; however to see her fabulous style you will have to come along and watch the show. 2 February @7:15pm. It’s going to be a sellout, so get your tickets FAST!imageimage


We were delighted to welcome a special visitor into Lisneal College today, Dr Shawna Draxton. Dr Draxton is a founding teacher of the award-winning CHIME Charter School and is visiting us, and our partner schools, as part of her ‘Shared Education Los Angeles Exchange Visit’.
She spent time today helping a Year 8 Home Economics class make scones and is pictured being treated to a lovely plate of freshly baked scones with butter and jam from Sam, Alice and Sarah. Whilst in the department, Dr Draxton was happy to present Sam with his ‘Certificate of Appreciation’ for helping with Open Night in the Home Economics Department.


We are forever proud of our many PAST PUPILS who have left us and went on to have successful careers. We have chosen to display a selection of past pupil achievements within school, that acts as a ‘Wall of Inspiration’ to our current pupils at Team Lisneal. Many thanks to Mrs Street for her fabulous wall display.


On Thursday we welcomed the Northern Ireland Commissioner for Children and Young People into school  to raise awareness of the work she carries out through NICCY. After addressing Year 8 on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child and how the articles within it affect their lives, she answered the many questions addressed to her by our Student Council. The Commissioner even had the opportunity to take part in a photograph with Year 8 doing the ‘dab’.  The Commissioner spent time discussing her task of promoting and safeguarding the rights of all children and young people in Northern Ireland and her priorities which are to address issues mental health, child poverty and education inequalities as well as embedding children rights across all government systems and processes. This was a thoroughly enjoyable event and was another opportunity to learn valuable lessons from the leaders who work to keep children safe.
