Sport at Harrogate Ladies' College

At Harrogate Ladies’ College we love sport.  We really believe that sport is an important part of developing a healthy lifestyle and all of our girls have timetabled sport up to and including Sixth Form.

“Sport, the life-blood of the school, is keenly pursued by all”

The good schools guide

The size of our school means that we have high levels of participation and inclusion in our sports teams.  We are also able to provide individual support and coaching which enables pupils to discover their talents and develop their skills. 

We play competitive sports including inter-house and inter-school competitions, in a range of traditional sports such as netball, lacrosse, rounders, tennis, athletics and swimming.  Under the guidance of our specialist teachers and coaches our girls enjoy exceptional sporting success and many also compete at County and National levels.

In addition we have a really wide range of additional sports on offer through both timetabled PE lessons and our extra-curricular programme including gymnastics, fencing, basketball, badminton, trampolining, golf and horse riding.  Visit the Clubs and Societies section of our web site to find out more about our extra-curricular sports clubs and coaching.
