Primary pupils get a taste of High School life

Last Thursday (5th October), a record number of visitors attended Withernsea High School’s Year 5 and 6 Open Evening.

The popular annual event offers parents, carers and their children a unique opportunity to tour the school and take part in a range of activities across all subject areas – providing prospective pupils with a full flavour of what the school has to offer.

From exciting demonstrations in Science to tasty Mexican treats in Food Technology, each department delivered hands-on activities, demonstrations and examples of work to a steady stream of impressed visitors throughout the evening.

Away from the subject areas, there were also opportunities to meet the school’s Senior Leadership Team, visit the canteen to learn more about the recently introduced Cashless Catering system and try samples of school dinners.

Headteacher Richard Williman commented: 'It was a real pleasure to meet so many prospective students and their families on Thursday evening and welcome them to our school. With so many students staying behind to work with their teachers and demonstrate what we do at Withernsea High School, potential new members of our school community gained a genuine insight into a normal day at school.'

'The feedback I received was overwhelmingly positive, with students and parents/carers commenting on what a warm welcome they received from everyone they met and what an impressive school and variety of provision we have. It was by far and away the busiest evening we have ever had and I look forward to welcoming our next group of students in September 2018.’ 

Any prospective parents/carers and their children who were unable to attend the evening are encouraged to contact Mr R Wardman, Deputy Headteacher at the school, to arrange a time for a potential visit. Mr Wardman can be reached via the main switchboard on 01964 613133.
