Scarborough College Motto

The entire design of the Scarborough College experience is driven by the school’s desire to ensure the changing needs of each and every child are met as they progress and grow.  The extraordinarily strong relations that exist between staff and pupils, and between the pupils themselves at the College are the very bedrock of the remarkable successes the pupils enjoy across all the many facets of school life.
