Proshare Student Investor 2004:  Every year, Lionel School enters a number of teams in the UK Proshare Student Investor competition.  This competition uses the computing, current affairs and mathematical skills of students, and also develops important citizenship skills with regard to financial skills for life.

In 1999/2000, the IT Girls from Lionel School reached the UK semi-finals, achieving the distinction of being placed second in Scotland, having converted an initial investment of £100,000 into over £356,000 in only three months - a profit of over £250,000.  For the last two school sessions, teams from Lionel School have consistently reached the UK quarter finals.

For 2003/04, a record seven teams from Lionel School have entered the competition:


Heeby Jeebies

Spice Girlz

The Almighty Cracks

The Giggling Geeks

The Special Boiz

Lionel School constantly strives to improve all the facilities for community and school use.
Lionel aerial photograph - this photo shows the layout of the school very well, set in the beautiful machair land of Ness, adjacent to the famous Traigh Shanndaidh surfing beach at Eoropie.  Other aerial photos can be seen at the Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar website
Community Centre - a £2 million community centre called Sporsnis is currently planned adjacent to Lionel School, with building scheduled to begin in 2003.  This will provide state-of-the-art facilities for all indoor games, a new culture and heritage room, community fitness room, climbing wall, 10-pin bowling, and community conference and life long learning facilities.


The following facilities are already available on site, for use by the community and school.

School Entrance - the entrance to the school has been recently re-modelled and refurbished, providing a welcoming aspect to all our visitors.
Cafeteria - the school dining hall recently received a commendation from the 'Scottish Healthy Choices Award' scheme.  Several choices of food courses are available daily for diners from the community and school, all for very reasonable prices.
Swimming Pool - our swimming pool is available for use by the school during the day, and by the community in the evening.  Every year, our school swimmers achieve distinction for themselves and the school by winning numerous awards at local and national championships.
Library - our school library is well equipped with computers with internet access, Gaelic learning materials and a Careers Library.  Plans exist for expanding the library to make it into a true community library catering for all age ranges.
Community Connect Computer Network - the school has a Local Area Network, running from a 'Research Machines Community Connect' server. Every classroom has at least one computer with internet access, and our main computer suite has digital projection facilities, A3 colour printing, and a colour scanner.
Floodlit All Weather Court - an all-weather games court ensures that 5-a-side football, basketball etc can take place at any time - the court is flood-lit for use in the evening.  Lionel School took part with some distinction this year in the 'Scottish Schools Football Championships (SSFA)' in Inverness.
Tennis Court - our second all-weather area is used for tennis, with a full sized court available for use, mainly during the summer months.  However, this court can also be used for 5-a-side football, basketball etc.
Snooker - Lionel School has a 'wet-weather games' policy, whereby snooker, table football, table tennis, badminton, volleyball and 5-a-side football are made available to pupils on a supervised basis if outside play is ever curtailed by inclement weather.
Table Tennis - table tennis is one of the indoor games available whenever the weather is too bad to go outside.
Football Field - the school football field is adjacent to the school, with organised training taking place on it regularly.  We also have access to the Ness Football Club pitch if the occasion demands.
