Last Friday (27/11/15), a number of Year 7 boys took part in the annual East Riding leg of the national five-a-side football competition which was held at 'Goals' on Clough Road, Hull. The draw was not very kind to the Withernsea players as they found themselves in a group with some much larger schools. However, our students rose to the challenge and put in a sterling effort.
Following the huge success of previous years' events, Withernsea High School have organised another Christmas Shopping Evening to help raise funds for good causes.
Over a dozen stall holders (and counting!) have already signed up to the event which takes place on Monday 7th December, between 4:00pm and 7:00pm in the Holderness Learning Centre. It will provide the perfect opportunity to purchase gifts for friends and family while supporting local businesses.
Staff and students at Withernsea High School have so far raised over £300 for this year’s Children in Need appeal, a figure which looks set to grow at the end of term when money raised from the annual Mufti Day – a traditional non-uniform day where students wear their own clothes for a small donation – will also be counted.
During the move to the new school building, a number of Cine Film reels were found in a store cupboard. The films appear to date from the late 1970s / early 1980s and capture a number of activities from drama performances to school trips. The films have now been digitised and uploaded to our website in the hope of us finding out some more information about them.
Hornsea School 3 - 1 Withernsea High School
The Sixth Form football team, which also consisted of four Year 11 students, went out of the East Riding School cup at Hornsea last night losing 3-1.
