We are a medium sized provider of A Levels, Applied Generals, CACHE and GCSEs in Scarborough. From September 2020 we will also be offering the new T Level. We have approximately 1100 students aged between 16-18, as well as some mature students. Our mission is:
"To inspire and educate our students in a supportive, inclusive environment
that enables them to fulfill their potential, enjoy successful careers and lead happy lives."
Last summer the college achieved a 99.5% pass rate with 71% High Grades for A Level and was in the top quarter in the country for student progress. It was also the first college in the country to be awarded the Quality in Careers Standard, which it received in June. It continues to be the best sixth form provider in the area with the majority of its students progressing to university each year and going on to enjoy successful careers.
We have a strong emphasis on helping students move from dependence to independence in a supportive environment. All students are allocated a Guidance Support Tutor (GST) to support them during their time here. Our GSTs monitor attendance and behaviour while at the same time encouraging students to develop as individuals and preparing them for the next stage after college.
We have invested heavily in buildings and resources over the last few years resulting in a modern university-type feel. The new facilities have allowed us to expand our range of courses and the flexibility we offer means that students can mix and match nearly any combination of courses to create a bespoke study programme to suit them and their career.
