Temporary closure of Harrogate College

18 March, 2020 5:47 pm

We are taking temporary measures to address concerns about coronavirus. Our priority is our staff and students and we have made the difficult but necessary decision to close Harrogate College from 3pm on Friday 20 March.

We will be facilitating the continuation of all learning electronically using Google Classroom and other digital platforms. Your teacher will have provided all the details you need to continue your learning remotely and can be contacted directly via Google Hangouts or email.

Some of our provisions have already started working remotely, so if that includes your course, please continue your studies as instructed.

If you think you might have coronavirus or if you have been in close contact with someone who has, please follow the government and NHS advice. Further information can be found here.

We understand that this is an unsettling time for us all. Below are some useful links if you are struggling with your mental health:




There is also support available for anyone living with domestic abuse northyorks.gov.uk/domestic-abuse

While our campus is closed, we will still be available to offer advice and guidance to potential and existing students, parents and members of the public. You can contact us via web chat here or by email at contact@harrogate-college.ac.uk

If you’re having difficulties at home such as financial issues or general worries, contact your PAL (pastoral staff)  via phone, Google Hangouts or email for help and support.

We look forward to seeing you back at college soon.

Yours sincerely

Danny Wild – Principal Harrogate College
