Scarborough Sixth Form College is one of the best institutions in the country according to Department for Education. Performance measures published in 2016 show that students at the Sixth Form College make exceptional progress in their studies. The published results show that the Sixth Form College is a top performer locally and nationally for value-added in both A levels and vocational (BTEC) results. In fact, among state schools and Colleges, Scarborough Sixth Form College is in the top 6% nationally for A level value-added and in the top 4% nationally for vocational value-added.
The Sixth Form college offers a variety of study courses to around 1,000 mostly 16- to 19-year-olds. Courses range from level 2 (GCSE) to level 3 (Advanced Level and BTEC). A 2001 Ofsted inspection described the college as "a particularly successful college", being rated 23rd in a list of the United Kingdom's most successful colleges in that year.
An Ofsted inspection from 2016 said the college was a "good college" and it "displays elements that are outstanding"
The college has a Careers centre with staff to help students choose a career path to suit them.
Students take AS or A2 (A-Level) qualifications, as well as BTECs and GCSEs.
The £3 million refit of the college, including the library facility, was fully completed in November 2012.
