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 Prep school
Scarborough College's Prep 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 Prep 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 was renamed as Bramcote Junior School. The outgoing head of the prep school is Dan Davey.
The Pre-School, known locally also as Little Owls, is based in part of the new purpose-built building for the Prep 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, a sports hall, astroturf and performaing arts theatre. Pupils 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, music and drama facilities.
