History

Grammar schools

Historically, the campus began as the Sir William Turner's Grammar School in Coatham. Sir William Turner left money to form a school in Kirkleatham in 1709, which was rebuilt on Coatham Road in 1868. In 1963 it moved to buildings on Corporation Road, opposite the current college. The boys' grammar school and the Cleveland Grammar School for Girls, on Redcar Lane, went comprehensive in 1975, with both sixth forms merging to form the Sir William Turner's Sixth-Form College located on Redcar Lane. The girls' grammar school became Rye Hills School. The original school charity was the Sir William Turner Foundation.

College merger

In 1994, the sixth form college moved back to Corporation Road and merged with Cleveland Technical College to form the current college.

In 2018, the college merged with Stockton Riverside College. As part of the merger both colleges maintained their name and identities in their respective local communities.

Former campuses

The main college was the Corporation Road Campus of the College. The Connections Campus was on Redcar Lane (B1269), at the southern end of Redcar Racecourse. This site was planned to become 187 new houses. The Loftus Campus was in the Centre of Opportunity & Partnership on High Street in Loftus, North Yorkshire.
