Unique atmosphere in a stunning location
Scarborough College, which now specialises in boarding for students aged 13-18, was founded in 1896. Overlooking the South Bay of Scarborough, North Yorkshire, the School is nestled within an attractive 14 acre site which enables boys and girls to thrive on a personal and academic level. Visitors frequently comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere at the School. Access to Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports, as well as the cities of York, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Hull, is excellent.
The College is a registered charity (number 529686) that exists to provide high-quality education to boys and girls aged 3–18.
Pastoral care of a different kind
Scarborough College places high value on pastoral care and support for every child. From day one until the last day of school, students receive individual support and care to ensure they show perform as best as they possibly can. A special educational needs coordinator is at hand for children who find aspects of learning more challenging.
The school has always had a strong reputation for offering a broad and stimulating education. Being a champion of innovation, it was one of the first schools in North Yorkshire to introduce the International Baccalaureate (IB), which is a two-year course to prepare sixth-form students for university and life after school. Scarborough College is currently the top-performing IB school in the North East of England.
The traditional subjects of English, mathematics, science and modern foreign languages are at the heart of the school’s operations. International students can also receive extra English language tuition, where necessary.
Pupils are encouraged to develop a broad range of interests through the Enrichment programme (EP). Sport, music, drama and other activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award can all be pursued. There is a programme of overseas visits, ski trips, outings and events organised every year. Cultural activities such as film club and chess are also available.
A spectacular location by the sea and a friendly, caring community. A beautiful place to live and learn.
