George Pindar School is a co-educational secondary school in Eastfield, Scarborough in North Yorkshire, England. It was previously named George Pindar Community Sports College (GPCSC), but during 2012 the school reverted to its original name.

The school is the home of a state-of-the-art tennis centre, Scarborough Football Academy U-19's and Scarborough Pirates ARLFC, which hosts the Scarborough Rugby League Festival.[citation needed]

George Pindar School has increased students’ progress over the past few years. In 2009 it was the first secondary school in the Scarborough area to receive a 100% 5 A* to C grade with 42% including Maths and English. August 2012 results were 59% A* to C, including Maths and English.[citation needed]

The school has an AstroTurf pitch: an all weather court the size of a football pitch with dug outs and storage space. The school has 3 football and 2 rugby grass pitches. A newly built[when?] school skate park, and a leisure centre are open to the public.

The footballer Darren Wood, and Danny Price the boxer, are former pupils of the school. Other notable alumni include actor Mikey North and fashion designer, Ann Louise Roswald.[citation needed]
