All admissions and enquiries for Scarborough College including the Pre-School, Prep School, Senior School and the Sixth Form should be directed to our Registrar, by telephoning +44 (0)1723 360620, by e-mailing or by completing the Contact Us form on the website. The school fees can be found in the download area at the bottom of this page.


Any family who would like to apply for our Pre-School should initially contact our registrar, Gemma Pierson at the College.  They will then be offered the option of visiting Mrs Hunter at the Pre-School for a family visit and play session. Parents are also welcome to drop in to our weekly Parents & Tots sessions to get a feel for the pre-school.

There are no assessments, just an application form to complete in order to register your child and secure your prefered sessions.  There is also no commitment to having to progress to the Prep School if you join our Little Owls Pre-School, although this is something you may wish to discuss in due course.

Prep School

Admission to the Prep School is by the family visiting the school and all having an interview with the Head of Scarborough College Prep School, Mr Chris Barker. Taster days can also be arranged.

Sixth Form

Our students study the International Baccalaureate. Admission is subject to the achievement of a minimum of five GCSEs at Grades 9-4 (previously A* to C), or equivalent, and an interview with IB staff. Students may also be required to take an entrance examination.

To arrange a visit, please contact our registrar, Gemma Pierson as detailed above.

Overseas Students are required to submit:

  • School reports for the previous two years
  • Certificates, if appropriate (GCSE or equivalent and any other exams taken)
  • Written reference from the Head of current/previous school

All applicants are required to have a good standard of spoken English – this is a particular requirement of the UK Border Agency when Visas are required. On arrival at the College, students are required to complete a diagnostic test to determine their level and needs. Extra English lessons can be provided at an additional cost of £300-£500 per term.

A non-refundable Registration Fee of £75 is required when registering. Where an overseas student is currently educated in a UK school, the general assessment applied to UK students can be undertaken if the candidate is able to visit the College. Alternatively, if the student is unable to visit us, we will send appropriate examination papers to an Agent or to the student’s current school for them to invigilate on our behalf. Candidates who pass the examination will be offered a place at Scarborough College – acceptance of the place is by return of the Acceptance Form, together with payment of the required fee.

All students living outside the European Union are required to have a UK Guardian. Students within the EU may list a Guardian, if they wish. Please note that Scarborough College cannot take responsibility for finding Guardians, but we can provide guidance on how to find a Guardian if this is difficult.
