About Us

Since 1999 The Academy Hair and Beauty Training College has been pursuing and promoting excellence in hairdressing and beauty therapy training across the region; working in partnership with full time students, apprentices, schools, colleges and employers.

The Academy offers a range of City & Guilds hair and beauty courses including hairdressing, beauty therapy, barbering and nails services. Students tell us they enjoy our supportive learning environment where they can learn new skills and form new friendships.

We work with over 200 students each year at our purpose built training colleges in Malton and Scarborough. In our training salons, which are open to the public, students will develop their practical skills and our fully qualified tutors share a wide range of industry experience.

Whether you are thinking about training, or you are interested in visiting our training salons, we look forward to hearing from you.
