Student Activities

This timetable shows regular weekly activities and one-off events available to all students at Harrogate College. 

Students at Harrogate College.

We want you to have a great time at college and to leave with more than your qualifications. These activities are designed to give you opportunities to connect with similar people, learn new things and develop hobbies.

This is a live document which we add to every week as new clubs and events are arranged, so keep checking to see if there’s something you would like to participate in. If there’s something you want to do that isn’t on the timetable, or you have any feedback, message Megan Hawkswell on Google Hangouts. You can also join the ‘Chill and Chat’ sessions, where we discuss putting your ideas into action. 

It’s important that these activities are accessible to everyone, so contact Megan if there is something we can adjust to ensure you can join in. For example, if you want to join but can’t make the times scheduled or if you need captions on a video call.
