As well as living in the town of Whitby and its beautiful surrounding areas, colleagues travel from areas such as Redcar, Guisborough, and Ryedale, as well as from Scarborough and Filey.
Caedmon College is located on two sites about 5 minutes walking distance apart: our Normanby site hosts students in Y7-11; and our post 16 students are based at the recently refurbished Whitby Sixth Form site.
