Ashville College to host first virtual Open Day of 2021

Harrogate’s Ashville College is opening its doors to a global audience when it holds its first virtual Open Day of 2021 on Saturday 27th February.

Harrogate’s Ashville College is once again opening its doors to a global audience when it holds its first virtual Open Day of 2021 next weekend (Saturday 27th February). Taking place between 9.30am and 1pm next Saturday, the online event will provide information about Ashville’s learning journey, all the way from the Acorns Nursery Class to the Sixth Form. The open day, being held on the College’s event platform, will feature a series of live Q&A sessions throughout the day with key members of teaching and Admissions staff, providing families the opportunity to find out more about all areas of the College. There will be opportunities to explore the campus facilities and watch a wide variety of talks and presentations from Heads of Department from across the Ashville Prep School, Ashville Senior School and Ashville Sixth Form. Topics under the spotlight will include the academic curriculum, sport, enrichment opportunities, pastoral support and boarding options. In addition, there will be video interviews with day and boarding pupils to provide their important pupil-perspective of studying at Ashville. Ashville College’s Acting Head, Elspeth Fisher, said:

“Once again we will be throwing open our doors, albeit virtually, to prospective pupils and parents, not just here in Harrogate, but nationally and internationally too. “While we of course hope to be able to resume physical visits to the College as soon as possible, the virtual event is a fantastic opportunity to find out what sets Ashville apart from other independent day and boarding schools. “This event is ideal for prospective families as well as those who already attend Ashville and are considering options for their child’s transition to Prep School, Senior School or Sixth Form, whether it is for the upcoming academic year or ones to follow. “At our first virtual Open Day of 2021, visitors will get a unique insight into Ashville College life and hear firsthand from those who teach, work and study here.”
