Open Morning for prospective parents/carers

We would very much like to welcome prospective parents/carers and their children to Harrogate Grammar School, under normal circumstances we would be inviting you all into school for an Open Morning to give you the chance to experience the atmosphere of our school. However, in the light of the current situation, we have had to make the difficult decision to make our open events virtual.

For our Open Morning virtual event, you can find a short welcome from the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Director of Lower School, there is also a small virtual tour of the school and answers to FAQs.

In October, we will be holding a far more comprehensive virtual open event with a detailed presentation about the school from the Headteacher, introductions to subject areas, testimonials from students and information regarding Catering, Admissions, Learning Support and the PTA. We hope between these two virtual events you will have all the information you need to help you decide which secondary school is right for your child, if you do have any further queries please contact

Our New Intake Days this academic year are on the 13, 14 and 15 July 2021 and, provided we will be able by then to hold face-to-face events, all the new Year 7 children who are allocated a place will attend all three days in preparation for September.

If you would like specific information regarding how to apply, catchment areas and admission criteria, please contact the North Yorkshire School Admissions Team by phone (01609 533679), email: or via their website:
