Scarborough Sixth Form College is located on the outskirts of Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England.


The Sixth form college offers a variety of study courses to around 1,000 mostly 16- to 19-year-olds. Courses range from level 2 (GCSE) to level 3 (Advanced Level and BTEC). A 2001 Ofsted inspection described the college as "a particularly successful college",[3] being rated 23rd in a list of the United Kingdom's most successful colleges in that year.[citation needed]

An Ofsted inspection from 2016 said the college was a "good college" and it "displays elements that are outstanding".[4]

Students take AS or A2 (A-Level) qualifications, as well as BTECs and GCSEs.

In 2012 the college opened a new study space called "The Hub"; it was opened by former students, Howard Wilson and Toby Jepson.[5]

The £3 million refit of the college, including the library facility, was fully completed in November 2012.[6]
