Harrogate High School is an Academy Trust for students in Years 7 to 13 (age 11 to 18). As an Academy Trust, we are our own admission authority, but admissions to Years 7-11 are co-ordinated on our behalf by North Yorkshire County Council.
Parents who live outside North Yorkshire may also apply for entry to Harrogate High School. You should contact your local authority, ask for one of their common applications forms and return it to them. These applications will be considered after all catchment area applications have been allocated. North Yorkshire County Council will notify your local authority if you have been successful in gaining a place at Harrogate High. Your local authority will be responsible for offering your son/daughter a place if we are unable to meet your preference.
Home to school transport is provided by North Yorkshire County Council and is free of charge for eligible students. Generally this means students (even if they are not on the regular bus route) who live over three miles away or students on free school meals who live more than two miles away. Please see www.northyorks.gov.uk for further information or contact the The Education Office on 0845 0349467.
Harrogate High School is operated by Northern Star Academies Trust, an exempt charity regulated by the Secretary of State for Education. It is a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (company number 07553531), whose registered office is at 77 Gargrave Road, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 1QL (where a list of members may be inspected).
