Library Quiz

My name is Callum, and I am a Pupil Librarian at Winifred Holtby Academy. To achieve my bronze award, from the School Library Association, I had to organize a Library event.

I decided to do a library quiz for everyone to take part in. I made the quiz about “Fairs”, and held it during Hull Fair week. I had fun organising the quiz and choosing the prizes. Everyone who took part enjoyed it, and learnt about the history. They had to use library books and the internet to find the answers.

The winners were Kelsey 9LKE, and Chris 11PSY. The prizes that they won were a Halloween bucket full of sweets.

Today we have been a part of training the nation in life saving CPR skills. It has been a Europe-wide initiative that has helped train thousands of young people on how to save a life. 

Throughout the day we have had over 100 pupils take part in the British Heart Foundation restart a Heart day. 

As you can see from the photos - our pupils seem to have really enjoyed themselves and are now fully equipped in helping to save a life.

Congratulations to our first Year 11 Star of the Week. This fantastic pupil was nominated by two of her teachers.


Excellent attitude and outstanding work all year. I’ve never come across a student who is more determined in achieving than her. She created some revision cards for each topic in Geography without me instructing her to do so and always takes her book home to do extra work. Never missed an intervention or lesson 6. A model pupil by all accounts.”
— Mr Foster

Mr O'Mara wrote, "It has to go to her – she puts her heart and soul into her art folder and tries 110%!!"

Well done! Each star will receive a free prom ticket and other goodies! Keep working hard Year 11 and this time next week, the Star of the Week could be you.

Core Subject Revision Night

Please note: This is an invitation only event.

Dear Parent / Carer

I am personally writing to invite you and your child to a session showing pupils how to revise for their Core subject GCSE examinations.

Revising before exams is proven to raise pupils’ grades and therefore it is important that pupils know how to successfully revise. The session will focus on giving information and techniques about how to revise for exams and how, as parents, you can support this. This session will provide each pupil with a personalised revision pack and a free revision stationary kit. A selection of free drinks and snacks will be available for pupils and parents.

Parents will not be required to undertake any work throughout the session; your role is to support your child with the process of revision. It is important that parents / carers and pupils attend this 1-hour session; revision techniques will be shown and pupils will be given personal resources in which they can use to optimise their revising.

Below are some comments from our previous sessions:


I was apprehensive about this due to the school being not very memorable time for me but as my child is showing positive signs in his schooling I came along. The session was very informative and not at all what I was expecting. Now I can help my child even if I don’t understand the work so much due to understanding the revision booklets given today. Well worth an hour of my time.”
— Parent

  • “It was a good session, would recommend all parents to attend future sessions.”
  • “I thought the session was really useful and much better than I expected. It’s great to see teachers put in extra support to help.”
  • “Really useful evening. Feeling much more confident for helping her with her revision”
  • “Enjoyed it, it helped me to understand things better, Thanks for the help”

The two options are as follows:

  • OPTION 1: Thursday 26th October 4:30pm–5:30pm
  • OPTION 2: Thursday 26th October 6:00pm–7:00pm

Thank you for your support.

Miss Warhurst
