Lymm High School is proud to support Warrington’s bid to become the official City of Culture 2021.

The school, granted a royal charter in 1601, has strong historic links with Warrington and currently has more than 2000 students enrolled.

The school is proud of its long tradition of service to the community and now students at the High school are backing the towns bid to become the next UK City of Culture by becoming the first Warrington 2021 student ambassadors.

Last week, the school took part in a number of events supporting the bid. Student Jess Ward led the campaign, delivering assemblies that celebrate Warrington’s culture and heritage and explaining to her peers what winning the City of Culture Bid could mean for the town.

Lymm High also took over the Warrington 2021 twitter account for the day, tweeting about how students engage with culture, both in school and in their community.

The creative arts are embedded in Lymm High School’s culture. From the Lymm High String ensemble who are set to perform at the National Music for Youth Festival to our Fashion students, who this week held their final degree fashion show, as well as putting on ambitious plays like ‘The Snow Dragons’ as part of The National Theatre Connections Festival and ‘The 400’ at Warrington Parr Hall.

Headteacher Gwyn Williams said “Lymm High School is delighted to support Warrington’s City of Culture bid.
