Westcliff High School For Girls Celebrates 100th Intake of Pupils

23rd September 2019

Former students invited to get involved with the Centenary Celebrations 

Celebrations have begun at Westcliff High School for Girls as we have just welcomed in our 100th intake of Year 7 pupils.  Pupils from Year 7 & Year 8 formed the number 100 in the Sports Field to commemorate such a huge milestone.

The 100th intake of pupils kicks off a very exciting year of Centenary Celebrations for the school with various activities taking place over the next year to mark 100 years since it was founded.

During its existence, the School has seen many changes and witnessed many important historic events of the 20th and 21st centuries.  Many Pupils were evacuated to Derbyshire during the Second World War, Queen Elizabeth II came into reign, decimalisation was introduced, man stepped on the moon and the first female Prime Minister was elected.

“Celebrating 100 years of a school’s life is a momentous occasion and one which we are inviting the whole school community to get involved with” said Dr Hayman, Headteacher at Westcliff High School For Girls.  “We have a number of events for current pupils, their families and staff to enjoy and we are also urging any past pupils to get in touch so that they can be part of our exciting celebrations and come back to see how the school has changed ” said Dr Hayman.

To find out more about the events and register your interest in the Centenary celebrations, simply visit email or call 01702 476026 x223.

In addition to their programme of events, local historian and past pupil Judith Williams is writing a book to commemorate the centenary and would welcome contributions from past pupils.  To submit any interesting photos, anecdotes or memories you would like to share, simply visit
