Pickering High School, Hull

Pickering High School is a secondary school in Hull, England. The headteacher is Mrs Elaine Wadsworth.The school's GCSE results are improving every year and the school hopes to improve this year with the current year 11's. The school's canteen has taken on a new healthy eating campaign and there are numerous sport activities to do in and out of school.

The school has had a revamp over the last few years introducing a new building to replace the older dilapidated building and bring the school on to one site. A sports hall was built to back up the sports college status.
