School profile

Scalby School

Scalby School is a school where students are known and cared for as individuals within a happy, pleasant learning environment.
We have a strong academic focus and aim to be outstanding in all we do. Learning how to be even better is as important for our staff as for our students, which is what makes Scalby such a vibrant learning community and renowned for its high standard of teaching and learning.

We take our role as community members very seriously – not only in terms of Scalby School, but also as citizens of Scarborough, and of the world. Our students are encouraged to get involved with fundraising activities both of a local and international nature.

We have strong ties to our partner primaries and their pupils visit us to enjoy a range of different experiences which, in turn, help them to acclimatise to life at secondary school. At the other end of the learning journey, we have established close links with providers of Higher Education and the local business community to ensure a smooth transition through to the next stage of our students’ careers.
