Hundreds of students and parents turned out to Scarborough Sixth Form College’s October open evening with many parents commenting how much the college has changed over the years.

Armed with maps and assistance from Student Ambassadors they set off to explore the different subject areas of the college.

Each area had displays and presentations including live performances in the drama block, dissection of hearts in biology and some invigorating debates in philosophy and ethics.

Careers advisors were also on hand to offer impartial advice ensuring that the Year 11 students were clear on the steps they need to take to achieve their ultimate career goal whether with A Levels, BTECs, a Cache Diploma or another avenue completely. A number of parents told staff they had come to the college themselves at sixteen and were astonished by how modern the college has become thanks to a number of refurbishments over the last few years. Anyone who missed the open evening can contact the college to book a tour or alternatively there will be a catch-up open evening on February 11.
