One of the highlights planned for this weekend's digital event is a 360 degrees virtual tour of the Ashville College campus in Harrogate.

Launching this Saturday, October 3, the online event will give visitors from all over the world the opportunity to explore the 64-acre campus and extensive facilities, without needing to leave their homes.

Visitors will enjoy talks and presentations from teachers on a wide range of subjects, including academic curriculum, sport, enrichment opportunities, pastoral support and boarding options.

In addition, day and boarding pupils will be sharing their experiences of life at Ashville College.

One of the highlights planned for the event is a 360 degrees virtual tour of the College campus, providing the opportunity to explore the facilities across Prep School, Senior School and Sixth Form, from specialist teaching rooms to the impressive Sports Centre and boarding houses.

Acting Head, Elspeth Fisher said: “For obvious reasons, we have taken the decision to make this year’s Open Day a virtual discovery of Ashville College.

“This is a first in our history, and one that will give prospective pupils and parents an opportunity to tour the school, speak to staff and hear from a number of pupils currently benefitting from an Ashville education.

“And because our school community is a truly international one, holding a virtual Open Day will allow families from not just the local, Harrogate district to attend, but those from overseas too.

“The Admissions department will be on hand throughout the event to answer any questions attendees may have about applying to Ashville. We are really excited about staging this virtual Open day, it will be a unique chance to explore the College without actually visiting it.”
