Scarborough College

Founded in 1896 and steeped in tradition, Scarborough College is a thriving co-educational day and boarding school for children aged 3 - 18. Scarborough College enjoys an unrivalled reputation for opening doors and optimising children’s academic and co-curricular potential.

“A globally recognised leader in British independent education, a Top 50 Independent School offering A Passport for Life.”

Our beautiful campus is nestled in between the spectacular English northeast coast and the North Yorkshire Moors. It is a mere stone’s throw from Scarborough town centre and Scarborough’s South Beach. The College’s academic ethos is based upon traditional values but Scarborough College has also been an IB World School since 2007 and our Sixth Form students are enrolled in the IB Diploma Programme. This provides for a surprisingly progressive and student-centred approach to learning where all Senior School pupils are prepared for the rigours, the independency and the intellectual challenges of the IB Diploma.

Yorkshire Grit is our ground-breaking and innovative approach to co-curricular activities in the Senior School. From yoga and well-being to coastal survival courses and licenced surfing lessons, Yorkshire Grit is a holistic programme designed to find and hone skills as well as a sense of adventure in every child.

We are top performers in Northern England in hockey for both boys and girls and rugby for boys and through our connections with Scarborough County Cricket club, we have developed our Cricket Centre of Excellence. Even pupils who do not represent Scarborough College play sports every day, representing their Academic Houses or through Enrichment Programme games.
