In the Hall of what is now the Goole High School are two brass memorial tablets dedicated to the memory of the former pupils and teachers of the school who gave their lives during the First and Second World Wars. Throughout 1919 and 1920 there were several articles placed in the Goole Times reporting that the Old Pupils’ Association of the Goole Secondary School were considering the question of a War Memorial, and that funds were being raised for the memorial. The result of the effort of the Association was the donation of an organ with brass plaque with the dedication – ‘This Organ was presented by the Old Pupils’ Association to Honour the Memory of............... ‘Who From this School Gave Their Lives in the European War 1914-1918’. Although the Organ does not survive the brass plaque is still displayed in the old hall of the Goole High School.
