Harrogate Grammar School was formed in 1903 with only 44 pupils, many changes have taken place throughout the 111 years; the school relocated to the current Arthurs Avenue address, it became a comprehensive, each Headteacher in place has strived for academic achievement and excellence which the school has become renowned for, more recently Harrogate Grammar School has become an Academy Trust and a Teaching school. Being an Academy Trust allows for greater independence in being able to realise the school’s aim of providing excellence for all and being a Teaching School ensures the focus is upon excellence in teaching and learning by providing first class training for staff and staff from other institutions. The number of students currently stands at 1850.
Since Harrogate Grammar School was established and throughout all of these developments, Head Boys and Head Girls have been fundamental in forming and supporting the structure of the school. The school would like to reunite long lost friends and classmates and honour their contribution to the school with a fabulous celebratory evening.
On Saturday 12th July, Harrogate Grammar School is opening its doors to past and present Head Boys and Head Girls, the evening promises to be full of memories and reminiscing with the young and old. There will be a dinner prepared by the school’s award winning chef with speeches, music and entertainment throughout the evening.
