Underpinned by its core purpose of ‘Excellence for all’, the Sixth Form at Harrogate Grammar School delivers outstanding provision for young people through a wide range of subjects and wider opportunities.

It says that the combination of academic excellence, strong community and a wide range of enriching activities makes the Sixth Form at Harrogate Grammar School a special place to work and learn.

Ben Twitchin, Director of Sixth Form said: "The positive culture in the Sixth Form is something that is prized by our students, and it is important that prospective applicants get to hear first hand what our students think about their experience in our Sixth Form.”

Ahead of the application deadline of February 9, Tess Easthaugh, current Head Student of Harrogate Grammar School, interviewed students for a short video featuring the most frequently asked questions regarding Sixth Form life and learning – watch the film above.

She said: “I hope the video helps any future students thinking of applying to get an insight into sixth form life and that it helps answer any questions they might have before making their decisions.’

A guide on applying, entry requirements, the prospectus and application form can be found at Harrogate Grammar School - Red Kite Learning Trust - Applying.

Students will need to know the following ahead of completing their application form:

Course types. With a mixture of A Level, Btec, additional and enrichment courses available, it is important to think carefully about which combination of subjects fits best with current academic performance and future plans.
