WHS Transition 2021 - Issue 1

Thursday 3rd December 2020

We thought that the best thing to do would be to ask our current year 7 students if they could remember the sort of questions that they had about Withernsea High School, back when they were in year 6 – and if they could answer those questions for you. Here is what they came up with….



Transition pack

Before you join our school in September 2021, you will be sent a Transition Pack. 

This pack will contain a number of documents, with comprehensive information about the school and the transition process, which should hopefully answer any questions you may have about our school.

Digital copies of the current documents (for the 2020 - 2021 academic year) are available to view/download below.

Please note: These should be used as a general guide of what to expect and minor amendments will be made in Summer 2021.

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.
