Academic

Scarborough College has a proud academic tradition with pupils of all abilities fulfilling their potential and achieving the university and college destinations of their choice.  The inspection report of 2013 commented on the quality of the results at both GCSE and IB, praising students’ independent study skills and the excellent relationships between students and staff which are at the heart of this success.

At GCSE the students, both British and International, follow a rigorous programme based on sound academic subjects but tailored to the needs of individuals.  In the sixth form, the students follow the International Baccalaureate which offers a stimulating and internationally renowned qualification which attracts students from all over the world and prepares them for study at the world’s major universities.

Our students are supported in their studies by dedicated tutors and there is a specialist careers and higher education advisor to guide students to the appropriate courses or vocations.  This is of vital importance to ensure that students are well suited and prepared for the next phase of their education.
