Sad news

We are saddened to hear of the recent passing of two former Withernsea High School staff members.

Bill Jervis (Economics) and John Tomkins (Music) have both sadly passed away within the past few days.

Mr Jervis taught Economics at the school in the 1970s and 80s whilst Mr Tomkins joined the school as Head of Music in September 1979 before retiring from the same role in July 1995.

Both Bill and John are fondly remembered by the students they taught and the colleagues they worked with. 

The thoughts of the entire Withernsea High School community are with both families.
