Cambian Scarborough School is an independent, DfE-registered, co-educational day school, providing specialist education for up to 20 students, aged 8-18 years.


Cambian Scarborough School is located in Eastfield, on the outskirts of Scarborough. The school has been at its present site since 2008. We have maintained a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating over this time. It is a detached building, over two floors with general and specialist teaching spaces.


We offer a range of academic and practical qualifications to suit all abilities, interests, and needs. In June 2019, a member of the Senior Leadership Team qualified to enable our school to be a Forest school. This has meant that we can be even more creative in enhancing students’ learning, increasing their self-esteem, independence, risk taking, language and much more.

The School is non-denominational and has a secular ethos, but respects the cultural needs and religious beliefs for all. The school specialises in educating students with SEMH through flexible learning programmes, delivered using high-quality teaching and exceptional pastoral care. We achieve this by forming particularly strong relationships between teachers and students.


Behavioural management strategies are applied consistently and sensitively, ensuring that students are clear about boundaries and expectations, so that behaviour in classes contributes to good academic progress. We also place emphasis on preparation for adult life, particularly through the personal, social, citizenship and health (PSHCE) curriculum.


We pride ourselves on providing a warm, caring and nurturing environment where students are prepared to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Our school staff forms part of an effective multi-disciplinary team that aims to equip learners with the requisite knowledge and skills necessary to meet life's increasingly difficult challenges.
