Harrogate High School


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.





Harrogate High School is a founder member of the Northern Star Academies Trust which was established following a close partnership between Skipton Girls´ High School and Harrogate High School.

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 will work to develop strong schools, able to serve the local community, by providing high quality learning experiences and resources.




If you have recently moved into the area and would like to apply for a place for your son/daughter from September 2015, please contact Mrs Sue Wilkinson at swi@harrogatehighschool.co.uk and she will get in contact with you to discuss the admission.
