Our School


SEND and Inclusion

At Harrogate High School we are guided by our inclusive principles and consider the needs of all students in everything that we do. We believe that every child should have an equitable educational experience and we work closely with students, their families and when required, external agencies to ensure the best outcomes for our young people. All students are encouraged and supported to pursue excellence and to study to the best of their ability. We want all students to be able to experience a feeling of success and achievement.

Inclusion is a feeling. It is determined by perception and achieved by understanding. We are committed to and value each and every individual within the NSAT Community and beyond.
