Harrogate High School

Welcome to Harrogate High School

"A good school with outstanding leadership" (Ofsted)

Welcome to our school website; we hope that it gives you a flavour of our school.

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. 

Please see below for a complete list of this term´s events.




Harrogate High School is a founder member of the Northern Star Academies Trust, a growing multi-academy trust comprising Harrogate High School,  Skipton Girls´ High School and New Park Primary Academy.

Northern Star champions the learning of students, teachers and all associate staff. We are committed to providing a high quality educational and learning experience for all. Our unique partnership works to develop strong schools able to serve their local community, by providing high quality learning experiences and resources.
