An historic year

Withernsea High School was officially opened by Lord Halifax on Thursday 28th April 1955.

A year ago today, on the 60th anniversary of that event, we found ourselves on the brink of an exciting new era with a brand new state-of-the-art teaching block under construction as part of a 13 million pound investment in our school.

Today marks the end of our 60th year. Over the past 12 months we have seen many changes including: the demolition of most of our pre-existing buildings; the completion of the new teaching block and the extensive refurbishment of the retained parts of the original school. We have hosted the largest open day in our history; worked with a local brewery in creating a special ‘anniversary ale’ in the school’s honour; reunited three former Headteachers with their former workplace and enjoyed a return visit from the Archbishop of York.
