Sixth Form Opportunities at Harrogate Ladies' College

We believe that Sixth Form should give students the opportunity to grow personally as well as academically.  To be brave; to discover their strengths; to build resilience, to take on new challenges; to experience new things; and to explore new opportunities.

Throughout their time in Sixth Form our girls have access to a host of trips and activities that aren’t available to other pupils in school.  The activities are designed to encourage personal development and help build independence.  Among the girls’ favourites are the Art & Textiles trip to Venice; the History and Psychology trip to Auschwitz; and the physically and mentally challenging Gold Duke of Edinburgh expedition.

In Sixth Form, girls also have the opportunity to take on new and exciting leadership roles within school from Head Girl, Prefects and House Captains, to Sports Captains and Head of Choir.  These roles are highly respected within school and help students to develop skills and experiences, which are recognised and valued by both universities and employers.

There are many informal social events in Sixth Form for the girls to enjoy.  There are also slightly more formal occasions such as Sixth Form Dinners, the Sixth Form Leavers Lunch and the highlight of the year – the annual Sixth Form Ball!  These shared social experiences, together with our Annual Speech Day, are an important part of life in our Sixth Form.  They help to build lifelong memories – and the girls tell us they love them!
