Ashville College opens doors at first full Open Day in two years
Harrogate’s Ashville College is opening its doors this weekend (Saturday, October 2) as it stages its first full Open Day in two years.
Taking place on Saturday between 1.30pm and 4pm, it will be a golden opportunity for prospective pupils, their parents and siblings, to meet Rhiannon Wilkinson, who joined the College at the beginning of the new academic year as its eleventh and first female Head.
Mrs Wilkinson will give an address at 2.45pm. Others giving presentations during the course of the afternoon are Elspeth Fisher, Acting Head of Ashville’s Prep School; the Heads of School (Sixth Form Head Prefects); and the new Assistant Head: Head of Sixth Form, Leanne Norton.
The talks will begin at 2pm, while tours of the College, led by the ‘Red Ties’, Sixth Form Prefects, will start at 1.30pm and run throughout the afternoon. The tour route will feature the Music & Drama Block, Sixth Form Centre, Sports Centre, and Elmfield Block classrooms.
Refreshments will be served in a marquee, due to the dining room undergoing a circa £1m refurbishment.
Mrs Wilkinson said: “This is our first full open day in two years, so we are very much looking forward to meeting our prospective pupils and their families and showing off our facilities.
“This will be a chance for those unfamiliar with Ashville, and what it has to offer children aged 2 to 18, to explore our superb 64-acre campus, and meet and speak with Heads of Department and current pupils.”
