Sir Edward Lister


One of the rarely spoken truths about being a politician is that your aspirations and ambitions can only ever be realised through the efforts, hard work and expertise of others.  Naz Bokhari epitomised the new breed of school leaders who would rise to the challenge and work to provide young people with the first class education they deserved.  Naz’s gentle manner concealed a steely determination to raise the expectations of boys, whatever ther background and making sure they succeeded in their studies, careers and lives.  He was an inspirational figure through whose stewardship Ernest Bevin College become one of the most respected educational establishments in London with a reputation for academic and sporting excellence.  He instilled a sense of service and obligation in those charges who passed through his hands so although he will be dearly missed his legacy lives on.

He will be remembered as a wise, kind and well respected professional but prehaps more importantly, as a dear friend to many.
