Norton College is an 11-19 Academy with a comprehensive intake.
It was opened in 1963 and our present site has grown to meet our needs.
Approximately 700 pupils attend main College, with pupils being drawn from the town of Norton as well as surrounding villages.
In recent years, as a result of the interest in the Sixth Form, more students are travelling from the Coast to access a successful school with a Sixth Form.
Similarly, parents from across Ryedale now choose Norton if they feel it meets their child’s needs.
On the strength of examination results and successful Ofsted evaluation in 2007 and 2011, Norton College was given permission to convert to an Academy in 2011 as an “Outstanding” school.
Its current focus is on leading learning in Humanities and Science subjects, both in terms of vocational and traditional academic subjects.
The College is known for its curriculum, which balances traditional academic GCSE and A level courses, with successful applied learning courses.
In the last few years, the College has added to its GCSE and A level provision and caters for all types of learners.
It has a history of examination success, good attendance and high quality learning and teaching.
