  • Breck Foundation

    Published 22/09/17

    Next week, York High will be joining other secondary schools across the city to raise awareness about keeping yourself safe when online gaming.


    We are working in partnership with the national charity Breck Foundation to run assemblies with all of our Year 9 students. Students will receive a presentation on Wednesday 27th September from Lorin Le Farve who runs the charity.

    Lorin Le Farve's son Breck was tragically murdered by an adult who had groomed him through contact on gaming sites.


    To support the charities work we will be holding a City Wide ‘No Tech for Breck’ non-uniform day for all students on Friday 29th September at a cost of £1 per student.

    In addition to wearing non-uniform all students, teachers and parents are asked to use no social technology for the day including mobiles and tablets.


    More information on the excellent work of the Breck Foundation can be found on their website,

  • Y9 Holocaust Memorial Trip 2017

    Published 16/02/17

    Y9 Holocaust Memorial Trip 2017

    On the 1st of February, the RE department organized it’s annual trip for year 9 pupils to visit the Holocaust Memorial Centre in Nottingham. We went through a museum on site, looked around the memorial garden and heard the story of a Holocaust survivor. 

    In the museum there was photographs of Jewish families, information of how the war started, Adolf Hitler, examples of Nazi propaganda, model layouts of the ghettos and concentration camps and memorials of people who helped families in the war.

    The gardens contained plaques with messages about loved ones from the war. There was also a pile of stones which we placed more on to remember the children who died in the war.

    We heard the firsthand story of Hanika Dye, a woman who was born during WW2 and was separated from her mother when she was only 10 days old. She told us the story of the struggles that she has had all of her life and told us about her family and how they protected her.

    We learnt a lot of valuable lessons such as the fear Jewish people felt as they tried to survive and how much we should appreciate that we don’t live in a war struck country.
