Our mission at Scarborough Sixth Form College is to provide an excellent service to our community, based in Scarborough, but drawing from students along the Yorkshire Coast and into the hinterland toward York and Hull. 

The College has a very strong reputation in its community, and you will find at the College a very talented and hard-working staff team, who are very proud of our deserved reputation, and determined to build on this. At the heart of the College’s success are staff who are committed to the highest standards of professional practice in order to provide the best experience for students. The ethos of the College - honest and self-critical, but supportive - is very precious to us. 

At the last short inspection by Ofsted in 2016 we were confirmed as Good, but were on the cusp of Outstanding. There are numerous challenges and opportunities as we face the future, but our ambition to be outstanding, and to be excellent in all we do, is paramount. 

We are looking for an ambitious and determined person to lead the College, moving it forward to become one of the best. Already with substantial experience of management and senior leadership in education, you will have the skills and ambition to lead the College to excellence, through development and drive of the College team, and sustain its strong financial health in challenging times. 

With a high level of data fluency, good planning and communication skills, the key to success will be your ability to work with, and motivate, a diverse range of people toward clear aims through actions for improvement. You will have a very clear vision and sense of strategic purpose underpinning the evolution of the College, but you will also be able to respond effectively to a variety of day-to-day operational issues. 

Above all, what matters to us is the quality of the student experience, good teaching and effective support that underpins this. You will have a passion for the education of our students, and the commitment to raise both their aspirations and achievement. Our new Principal will provide strong leadership for our College in challenging times and be the right person to lead the College to the next stage in its development. 

To help you make the right decision we also offer you the opportunity to find out more about the College from Marcus, the current Principal. He can be contacted by phone 01723 365032 or by email
