Information about the school 

Withernsea High School is a smaller than average local authority maintained secondary school for students aged 11-16.

Situated in Holderness, East Riding of Yorkshire, with a coastal location, it has all the advantages of a pleasant rural environment.

There is affordable housing in the seaside town of Withernsea and in the surrounding villages house prices are relatively low.

Located approximately 18 miles to the east of Hull, the 2017 City of Culture, The school serves the population of southern Holderness and currently educates around 750 pupils.

The school benefitted from a rebuild and refurbishment in 2016 and as such is spacious, modern and fully resourced.

Our Ofsted inspection in November 2021 rated the school Good in all areas. It identified that: 

Pupils at this school are welcoming. A strong sense of tolerance and respect for others develops through the curriculum of the ‘head, hand, and heart’.

Pupils are focused in lessons. Teachers deal quickly with rare instances of off task behaviour. Pupils respond to teachers’ instructions well. At social times, pupils’ behaviour is calm. There are clear rules and routines which pupils understand and follow. Expectations of pupils are high.

Leaders have identified key aims in the curriculum. These include helping to ‘broaden horizons’ for pupils. The personal development curriculum has been carefully planned to achieve this aim. One pupil told inspectors that an important aim of the school was ‘to make people feel welcome, no matter who they are’.
