Lady Emma Ingilby opens the new Bankfield extension

The new term started at Bankfield with the opening of the Bankfield extension. Lady Emma Ingilby of Ripley Castle cut the red ribbon after a short speech from Alison Collings, Head of Bankfield.

Bankfield – the pre-prep department of Harrogate Ladies’ College – has expanded its Early Years provision, with new facilities and full-day and flexible child care for two to four year-olds, five days a week during term-time.


The move to full wrap-around care has been made to meet the needs of busy parents – and, in particular, the growing number of working mothers commuting to and from Harrogate.

Parents looking for exceptional care and education will find Bankfield – with its ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted and Independent Schools Inspectorate ratings – to be a happy, safe and homely learning environment, at what is such an important time in their child’s life.

The new indoor space will cater for the needs of two-year-olds and an extended new outdoor play area has been created to provide extensive green play space for all the children.
