The College was formed in 1999 by a merger of York Sixth Form College and York College of Further and Higher Education (formerly York College of Art and Technology). It used to exist on two sites but has recently consolidated them into one: a major redevelopment of the former Sixth Form College site (previously home to Ashfield Secondary Modern School)
