Harrogate High School

A good school with outstanding leadership (Ofsted)

Our vision is based upon the school motto of ´Learning First´...

We work together to raise the achievement of all students, thereby improving their life chances. By embedding ambition in our students we enable our young people to lead balanced lives as adults, capable of contributing to their community.

We are large enough to provide a broad and balanced education, but small enough to give individual attention and care to all our students with an emphasis on personalised learning. 

To find out more about our school including our innovative curriculum and superb facilities, please browse the website or contact the school for a prospectus. Parents may also request a tour during the school day to see first-hand what we are able to offer their child.


Thinking about the sixth form?

Harrogate High School´s A Level grades are well above national averages and teaching in the sixth form is rated outstanding by Ofsted.

To find out more about the Sixth Form at Harrogate High  School visit our Sixth Form section above or to arrange a visit contact Rickie Wilson, Head of Sixth Form riw@harrogatehighschool.co.uk.  You will be most welcome.
