Welcome to our Year 6 Transition page! Here you will find everything you need to know about the transition process.

Over the next few weeks, we will be releasing regular newsletters which will contain information, advice and guidance to help make the transition process as smooth and as stress-free as possible for both parents/carers and their children.

The newsletters will be released on this webpage fortnightly, and will also be shared via your primary schools.


If you have any questions or concerns about the transition process, please contact:

Head of Year 7 - Miss Z Wiseman

Progress Leader KS3 - Mrs A Monaghan

Special Educational Needs and Learning Support Coordinator - Mrs E McCreaddie


What is life like at Withernsea High School?

Under normal circumstances, we invite all Year 6 students in to school for two full days of fun and activities which offer a taste of high school life. Sadly, due to the current situation, we are clearly unable to deliver things as usual this year. However, that doesn't mean that you 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.
