Westcliff High School for Girls will be celebrating its centenary in September 2020, meaning we are now in our 100th year, with our 100th intake of girls. Throughout this year there will be various activities and celebrations to mark the occasion. Details of the events Alumni can be involved in will be shared here.
Plans are well underway for the Centenary celebrations which pupils and staff from past and present are warmly invited to. If you would like to find out more about our programme of events and ways you can get involved please contact email@example.com or complete your details below.
Centenary Afternoon Tea
As part of our Centenary celebrations you are cordially invited to our Centenary Afternoon Tea taking place at WHSG on Saturday 7th March between 2pm - 4pm. Current pupils, past pupils and their friends and family are all welcome to join us for an afternoon of free flowing tea and coffee and a selection of delicious cakes and sandwiches.
Various photos from across the decades will be on display for guests to enjoy and tours of the school will be available for those who would like to see how the school has changed over the years. We would be most grateful if parents/carers who are past pupils themselves are able to help us spread the word to any past pupils you may still be in touch with as it would be great to welcome back as many Alumni as possible to this special celebration.

Joint Garden Party with Westcliff High School For Boys - Saturday 20th June 2020
Save the date for this joint celebration as Westcliff High School For Girls and Westcliff High School For Boys join forces to commemorate 100 years. A fun day for all the family with stalls and a programme of events showcasing the talented pupils from both schools. Full timings and schedule to follow.
We are very excited to be collaborating with local historical author, Judith Williams, who will be writing a book about our school’s history. We are looking for stories, pictures, examples of memorabilia and anecdotes from our ‘Old Girls’, spanning the decades. Please use the form on this page to share your memories with us.
You don't need to answer every question. We would prefer a paragraph about two or three things, rather than a sentence about everything.
We may not be able to publish everybody’s name in the main centenary history, however, we are hoping to produce a companion book that is just people’s memories. In that book, we would like to publish the name of each contributor next to their memory.
