Out of Area Pupils

Parents who live outside North Yorkshire may also apply for entry to Harrogate High School. You should contact your local authority, ask for one of their common applications forms and return it to them. These applications will be considered after all catchment area applications have been allocated.  North Yorkshire County Council will notify your local authority if you have been successful in gaining a place at Harrogate High.  Your local authority will be responsible for offering your son/daughter a place if we are unable to meet your preference.
