Scarborough College is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3-18 years in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. It was founded in 1898 and opened in 1901. The school has been an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School since June 2006 - it offers the IB Diploma Programme in place of A-levels.
Pre-school and junior school
Scarborough College's junior school was moved on to the main campus of the College on Filey Road in 2002. It is currently housed in a modern, purpose-built building, separate from the College's historic main building. The junior school was formerly known as Lisvane, but was renamed Scarborough College Junior School in 2010. In 2012, the College merged with local preparatory school Bramcote, and the junior school was renamed as Bramcote Junior School. The outgoing head of the junior school is Dan Davey.
The pre-school, called Little Owls, was formerly based in part of the new purpose-built building for the junior school. However, in 2014 it moved to the old premises of Bramcote School across the road. Little Owls is currently led by Jackie Hunter.
Senior school and sixth form
The senior school is housed in the College's main building. The campus also consists of a separate Science and ICT block, and a sports hall/theatre. Students study a mix of GCSE and IGCSE qualifications in Years 10 and 11. Classes are taught in well equipped classrooms and there are a wide range of sport, ICT and music facilities.
