Redcar & Cleveland College is a further education college, based in Redcar, North Yorkshire, England. It is situated on the A1085 between Westfield and West Dyke, and very near Redcar Central railway station. It is in an area historically known as Coatham. Historically, the campus began as the Sir William Turners 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 Turners 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.
