“We’re here for all of you”

Welcome to Harrogate College

From your first day at college to your last, you will be welcomed, supported and encouraged so that you can achieve your dreams, grow as an individual and leave confident to embark on your future.

Our values are at the heart of our college and alive in everything we do. From our curriculum which we adapt to ensure you are learning what you need to succeed beyond college, to our inclusive environment where all are welcomed and can find a place to learn, develop and thrive.

We work hard to foster relationships with local businesses and employers to give you greater opportunities beyond the classroom. These connections help inform our curriculum ensuring you benefit from progressive, relevant lessons that equip you with the knowledge and skills that employers seek.
