Boarding at Scarborough College is so much more than having your room next to the school. It is about being part of a small family. It is about a sense of belonging to the school, the people, the town and its surroundings. It is about more than feeling at home. It is about being at home.
Boarding the SC way is a blend of traditional values and modern living. Set in the quiet residential area of Filey Road, at a stone’s throw from the College, our three boarding houses are historical buildings dating back to the Georgian and Victorian periods.
Scarborough College boarders are looked after by dedicated house parents, most of whom have teaching roles at the school. Visiting tutors, who assist the boarders during prep time are all academic staff that teach at the school.
Dedicated programmes such as the Enrichment Programme and Yorkshire Grit are inclusive and timetabled co-curricular activities that both day- and boarding pupils enjoy during the weekdays. In addition, many boarders represent the school in sporting events on Saturdays as well as weekdays.
Our Boarding Administrator Mrs Thomas ensures that there are special boarders’ activities every Sunday, which include day trips to York, cinema trips, outdoor activities and one very special activity every year.
