Harrogate Ladies’ College

Harrogate Ladies’ College is a vibrant, stimulating and diverse school community. Founded in 1893, we are a day and boarding school for girls aged 11-18 located in the heart of the beautiful spa town of Harrogate.

"A culture of high achievement pervades the school" - ISI Inspection report Many 2017

Around 40% of our pupils are boarders and come from all over the world. Boarders are fully integrated into our school community and live in one of our four comfortable family houses which provide a ‘home from home’ experience.
Outstanding teaching, strong pastoral support and a secure friendly community allow girls to excel academically and become confident, successful young women who strive to be the very best they can be. In 2020 our Sixth Form students what have been a truly unique and challenging set of circumstances. Top results were achieved across all subjects and it was in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) that the girls truly excelled. It was also an extraordinary year for our Year 11 pupils who showed resilience and exceptional commitment to their studies and their hard work and were rewarded with excellent GCSE results.

We have an excellent track record of securing places at some of the UK’s top universities. The majority of pupils secure their choice of university and 80% of offers are from Russell Group institutions. We always encourage our pupils to be themselves and to choose the path, and therefore the course, that is right for them. In 2020 destinations and courses included Imperial to study Medicine, Kings College London to study Mathematics, Japanese Studies at Harrogate has excellent rail and road links with easy access to Leeds Bradford Airport (20 minutes), Manchester Airport (90 minutes) and London Heathrow (35 minute shuttle flight).
