Video: What is life like at Withernsea High School?

Under normal circumstances, all Year 6 students would have been invited in to school for two full days of fun and activities which would have offered them a taste of high school life. Sadly, due to the current situation, we were clearly unable to deliver things as usual this year. However, that doesn't mean that they will miss out!

Some of you may have visited our school before and seen a glimpse of what life is like for our students and staff, whereas others may have been looking forward to their first visit. Whether you're familiar with the school or not, we hope you enjoy the following video which highlights some of the many things we do here at Withernsea High School.
