On Friday 20th March, there will be a near total solar eclipse. We would like students to be able to witness this unique event if possible, so we have ordered some solar eclipse glasses to allow students to view this safely.
However, as there are some Health and Safety considerations, I would appreciate it if you could read the following risk assessment and share this with your child / children. If you would prefer your child not to take part in this, please let the school know ASAP (01964 613133).
Students at Withernsea High School have raised around £170 for Comic Relief through the sale of Red Noses. The fundraising was led by members of the Sixth Form, some of whom dressed in items of Red to show their support for the cause. Thank you to everyone who donated and bought red noses!
We can now confirm that our open day for ex-students will take place on Saturday 4th July.
The day will provide the opportunity for former students to visit the school one last time ahead of its demolition later this year.
Although the exact details and timings for the day are still under discussion, we are releasing the date now so that people, especially those who will be travelling some distance to join us, are able to plan ahead with travel / accommodation etc.
Full details will be posted on the school website www.withernseahigh.org.uk as and when we have them confirmed.
In the meantime, if you haven’t already done so, please sign-up to our Alumni to share your post-school successes with us.
Back in February we installed a Time Lapse camera on the roof of the school to capture work as it progresses on the new build.
This morning (16th March) we ventured up on the roof to change the camera's batteries and download the first batch of data. Please see the video below for the results so far!
Please note that the next Headteacher's clinic is scheduled for Wednesday 25th March. This is a change of date from the planned clinic tonight (11th March).
We apologise for any confusion caused from the original date still being shown in the Parent Calendar
