Harrogate Ladies’ College

Founded in 1893, Harrogate Ladies’ College is a day and boarding school for girls aged 11-18 located in the heart of the beautiful spa town of Harrogate.
Outstanding teaching, excellent pastoral care and a secure, friendly community allow girls to excel academically and become confident, independent young women who strive to be the best they can be.

Our pupils achieve excellent exam results at both GCSE and A level. This year, students received offers from top UK universities including St Andrews, Warwick, Lancaster, Bristol, Leeds and Manchester to study a diverse range of subjects.

“ Possibly the warmest boarding atmosphere we have come across.” Good Schools Guide

Outside of the classroom there are many opportunities for pupils to excel in a wide range of specialist fields including Sports, Drama and Music. With over 50+ extra curricular clubs and societies and a varied weekend activity programme, there is always something going on!


Around 40% of our pupils are boarders and come from more than 26 countries. Boarders are fully integrated into our school community and live in one of our four comfortable houses which provide a ‘home from home’ experience. Each boarding house has a dedicated housemistress to care for and support our girls. They also keep parents updated with what’s going on in school.
Pupils also benefit from the school’s location in a quiet, safe residential area which is just five minutes’ walk from Harrogate’s historic town centre.



A 15% discount is offered on all College fees for the children of serving members of the UK Armed Forces. Forces families who are eligible for the Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA) can use the allowance against College fees.
