Ashville to stage hat-trick of events for prospective pupils and parents

Published by Ashville College on Thursday 10th of November 2022

Harrogate’s Ashville College is staging a hat-trick of events next month (November) for prospective pupils and parents.

The first, on Tuesday, November 1, is a Sixth Form Options Fair featuring presentations from College Head, Rhiannon Wilkinson, and Sixth Form Head, Leanne Norton.

Being held between 5.45pm and 7.30pm in the purpose-built Sixth Form Centre and the Soothill Hall, attendees will learn more about how Ashville guides its pupils to be ‘Future Ready’, how 2022 was
Ashville’s best ever year for A Level examination results, and what makes the Sixth Form at Ashville so special.

They will also learn about the Academic Enrichment pathways, the Speakers Programme, Sixth Form trips, visits and social events, and have the chance to speak to representatives from all of its A Level and BTEC courses, and meet key members of staff and current pupils.

Between 9am and 12pm the following day, guests at the Open Doors Morning at Acorns and Ashville Prep School for pupils aged two-11 will be able to take a tour of the school, watch pupils and teachers ‘in action’ on a normal teaching day, meet teachers and the experienced Senior Leadership Team, and have individual meetings with Ashville Prep School Head, Asa Firth, or the Head of Ashville Acorns Pre-Prep, Charlotte Cryer.

The final event is a Year 7 Taster Day, being held between 9am and 1pm on Saturday, November 12, where Year 6 pupils will have a chance to participate in activities, meet current Ashville pupils and gain a real insight into life at Ashville Senior School.

All pupils will be invited to take part in three taster sessions throughout the day, including Athletic Development, Maths Puzzles, Computing, Music, Philosophy and Science. Whilst there are limited places available for each session, the aim is to allocate pupils to participate in their preferred sessions. After the sessions, pupils will enjoy a lunch provided by the College’s catering team.

Ashville College Head, Rhiannon Wilkinson, said: "The open events we are staging give prospective pupils and parents a superb opportunity to learn more about Ashville and how we help children and young people to thrive here.

“This goes for the youngest boys and girls setting off on their academic journey, through to those taking the step from Year 6 to Senior School, and finally those seeking a Sixth Form that will fully prepare them for the next stage in their life.”
