Primary pupils experience a taste of High School life

Last Thursday evening, primary pupils from across Holderness experienced a taste of High School life as they engaged in a variety of activities at 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 interactive displays across all subject areas – providing prospective pupils with a full flavour of what the school has to offer.

From fiery demonstrations in Science to torch making in DT, each department delivered hands-on activities, demonstrations and displays of students’ work to a steady stream of impressed visitors throughout the evening.

Headteacher Mark Crofts commented: ‘Our Year 5 and 6 Open Evening is undoubtedly one of the main highlights in our events calendar and we were delighted to welcome a record number of visitors to our school for this year’s event.

The high school application process is a crucial milestone in education which sets students on a journey towards the Sixth Form and beyond.  

At Withernsea High School this journey aims to broaden the horizons of our students, ensuring they achieve excellent outcomes and develop the skills and attributes to succeed in a changing world.

I would like to extend my thanks to all who attended the event and I look forward to welcoming pupils as members of our new Year 7 cohort in September 2019.’

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 visit. Mr Wardman can be reached via the main switchboard on 01964 613133.
