Specialist College

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

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.

Since starting at Henshaws we've seen a huge change in Karina. She is happier in herself because she can see the achievement in what she is doing and she knows that it’s something positive to be proud of. It's made such a difference to our family."
