Plymouth College

Plymouth College is a unique school nestled within Britain’s Ocean City, surrounded by the sea and the national park of Dartmoor. Plymouth College has a success culture, which inspires our pupils to excel. The school has the highest academic value-added scores in the area, including both state and independent sectors.

Our Pre-Med programme regularly achieves a 100% success rate for pupils applying to medical school with the destination of choice for most students is a Russell Group University, American or Oxbridge Universities.

The school has a worldwide reputation for sport, particularly in the areas of elite swimming, fencing, hockey, rugby and cricket. Plymouth College offers a world-leading elite swimming programme, and had representatives at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021; with a former pupil taking a gold for Team GB. 


Plymouth College is fortunate in having the coastline and Dartmoor National Park on its doorstep. This allows the school to provide an unrivalled outdoor education provision including: Sailing, Sea and River Kayaking, Coast Steering, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Combined Cadet Forces (Army, Navy and RAF) and Ten Tors. Plymouth College’s role is to ensure your child excels at their academic studies, while developing those all-important skills required in their next steps into the world of further education and work.
