Sixth Form Pavilion – Harrogate Grammar School

Harrogate Grammar School

Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Harrogate Grammar School, an independent academy trust, is a specialist Language and Technology College in Harrogate with 1,700 pupils, of which 400 pupils are in the sixth form.

To accommodate the school’s ever expanding further education 16-19 section, Bowman Riley Architects was commissioned directly by the School to design and provide CDM coordination on a new £2 million Sixth Form Pavilion to replace temporary classrooms.

The new Pavilion provides purpose-built, world-class facilities for the students to learn, succeed and be prepared to take the next step into higher education or employment.

All sixth form facilities are now housed together on one site that contains well-equipped teaching classrooms, supervised areas for independent study, spaces for students to work collaboratively, laboratories, social spaces and a cloister garden. The laboratories are specifically for sixth form use and are fully equipped for the study of all three sciences at advanced level.

The Forum is a lecture theatre with retractable seating of 300, which provides a focal point for the academic work of the school and accommodates a variety of events including conferences, open days and student performances.

Harrogate Grammar School is proud of their outstanding sixth form facilities, which are matched by the outstanding achievements of their students.
