Awards Evening - Cancelled

Due to the loss of our heating system following a power cut which affected the local area this morning, we have had to sadly cancel this evening's awards ceremony.

We shall ensure that the students who were due to receive awards will still be presented with them in school.

For anyone who was planning to attend the event to collect GCSE or A-Level certificates, these are available to collect from the main school office daily between 7.30am and 4.30am.

Early closure today - 05/01/17

Following this morning’s power cut across Withernsea we have been unable to restore the gas supply to our heating system and kitchen. As a result, school will close early today (05/01/17) at 1.00pm.

Happy New Year

We would like to wish all our students and their families a very happy new year.

We look forward to welcoming students back to school from 8.30am tomorrow (Wednesday 4th January).

Finally, a reminder that this Thursday evening we will be hosting our annual Awards Evening for our top performing students at GCSE and A-Level

The evening provides a great opportunity for students to collect their certificates in front of family and friends. Parents of these students will have by now received an invitation for the evening, which begins at 7.00pm.

Also receiving awards will be Year 11 and 13 students, who are being recognised by their teachers for excellent performance in their studies this year.
