Northallerton College, formerly known as Northallerton Grammar School, was founded in 1323. Parts of the old school building can be seen adjacent to All Saints' Church near the north end of Northallerton High Street. The Grammar School moved to its current site in 1909.

Northallerton College receives a number of A Level students from local schools. Northallerton College educates young people between the ages of 14 and 18, (Year 10 to Year 13), as an upper school in the three-tier system. The Allertonshire School is the college's partner school, educating children between the ages of 11 and 14 (Year 7 to Year 9). The College received a 'good' rating in its last Ofsted report.
It is situated in the centre of Northallerton off the A167.
In its early history it was known as Northallerton Free School.
In the 1940s it had around 250 boys and girls, and 450 by 1970. It was administered by the North Riding Education Committee.
In 1973 became a comprehensive under the name Northallerton Grammar School, administered by North Yorkshire, based in Northallerton. As a comprehensive it has always had a 14-18 age range. At the same time the Allertonshire School was formed from the town's two secondary modern schools. In 2009 the school became federated with Risedale Sports and Community College in Catterick.
In 1994 the school governors decided to change the name from Grammar School to College in order to reflect the reality of their service to the whole community. This still stands.
It gets GCSE results above average, and A level results at the England average.
