Harrogate High School

About Us

Harrogate High School is a thriving 11-19 state-maintained independent academy to the North East of Harrogate with approximately 600 students.

We are a friendly, inclusive school small enough to give every student our personal care and attention, but large enough to provide a good breadth and quality of education.  We place learning first for all our students, providing good quality teaching and a flexible curriculum within a culture of mutual respect and responsibility.  We strongly believe that this is the key to raising the achievement of all our young people.

We are proud of our

  • sustained examination success with over 98% of students achieving five good passes at GCSE level each year
  • superb facilities including a completely new school building planned for 2016
  • flexible curriculum and innovative teaching
  • small class sizes
  • excellent transition programmes
