Our Campus

Our family of 3 leading independent schools are located within a beautiful 22 acre site in the heart of Harrogate, just 5 minutes walk from the town centre and a couple of minutes from the renowned Valley Gardens.  We are located in the Duchy area of Harrogate, an exclusive residential area marked by its tree lined avenues and large Victorian family houses. 

Our main school building was opened in 1904 and today we occupy most of the buildings along Clarence Drive.  Our buildings are a reminder of our fascinating history, but offer modern facilities relevant to our schools today.
