The recently extended Sixth Form facilities provide the perfect setting for students looking to get the best possible education before making the move to university and beyond.

Lucy Vincent, Director of Sixth Form at Harrogate Grammar School, spoke about how important Open Afternoons like this one can be for prospective students:

“This is the first-time students have a really free choice in what they study. It is really important they attend open evenings, so they can receive support in making the right decisions.

“A Levels are now linear, so effectively you have two years of learning before a final exam which makes that decision even more important."
