University Destinations

At Harrogate Ladies’ College, one of the UK’s leading independent girls’ schools, we have an excellent track record of securing places at some of the UK’s top University destinations, which belies our status as a largely non-selective school. 

The majority of our girls secure their first choice of university, a high percentage of which are Russell Group institutions.

The range of university courses that our girls go on to study is incredibly diverse and reflects the wide range of A level subjects that we offer.

We were delighted that 72% of our pupils received offers from the UK’s top Russell Group universities. We always encourage pupils to be themselves and to choose the path, and therefore the course, that it right for them. The diversity of the subjects our girls went on to study is a real reflection of this.
