Harrogate Ladies’ College & Highfield Prep shortlisted for Independent School of the Year Awards

Leading Harrogate schools Harrogate Ladies’ College and Highfield Prep have been shortlisted for Independent School of the Year awards in the Independent School Parent Magazine Awards. Both schools received the good news this month and will wait to hear the final decisions which are being announced in October later this year.

The prestigious awards highlight the quality of student experience and celebrate the outstanding achievements across independent schools. Whilst Harrogate Ladies’ College is in the running for Girls School of the Year, Highfield has been shortlisted in the Prep School of the Year category for the second year in a row. The awards received a record number of nominations this year with hundreds of schools from across the country submitting entries in all twenty awards categories.

Harrogate Ladies’ College Principal Sylvia Brett said,

We were delighted to receive the news that Harrogate Ladies’ College has been shortlisted for Girls School of the Year and to hear that the hard work of our outstanding staff and pupils has been recognised by the panel at this stage. We make it our mission to provide opportunities which challenge every single girl to flourish, to be free to be themselves and to leave ready to take on the world on their own terms. It’s an honour to be shortlisted alongside so many other outstanding schools and we look forward to hearing the panel’s final decision later in the year”.

Head of Highfield Prep James Savile said,

We were all thrilled to hear that Highfield has been shortlisted for Prep School of the Year. We have had another fantastic year and are extremely proud of everyone within our school community whose contributions make Highfield the very special place that it is”.
