Selby College is an Ofsted Outstanding College located in Selby, North Yorkshire, England. The College is the main provider of A levels and Vocational education to 16-18 year olds in the local area. In addition the College provides a wide range of apprenticeships, higher education and workforce training for young people and adults.

The College has a wide catchment area for its 16-18 year old learners, mainly in North Yorkshire, but also stretching into the East Riding of Yorkshire and Northern Doncaster. The apprenticeship and higher education provision draws from the whole of Yorkshire and the Humber and beyond.

Selby College is a provider of Higher Education and provides awards up to degree level from the University of Hull and Huddersfield University, as well as working with Edexcel to provide Higher National Certificates and Diplomas (HNC & HND).

In June 2011 the College completed a 10 year redevelopment programme, which involved construction of new buildings to supplement facilities.

Following the opening of the Sixth Form Academy in 2004 and the Renaissance Building in 2006, the third building, aptly named the Jubilee Building, as it was opened in the college's 25th year, welcomed its first students in January 2010.

The building programme drew to a close with the completion of a new Construction and Engineering Building and an extension to the existing Renaissance Building to provide additional media facilities, including a new state-of-the-art studio. Both of these buildings opened to students in Autumn 2010, with landscaping and grounds work being completed the following summer.
