Specialist College

Henshaws Specialist College in Harrogate is a transformational place. Through our personalised approach to education, learning and care we empower young people aged 16-25 living with a disability to progress and live life the way they want.

Flexible courses for disabled young people

Whether preparing for employment, making friends or learning to live more independently, we enable our students to make their aspirations possible and goals a reality.

You can come to College as a day student or live on campus in our residential accommodation. We also offer part-time programmes from one to four days a week. We’d love to work with you to help you achieve your goals.
