Plymouth College is based in the maritime city of Plymouth with the moorland, countryside and coastal landscapes of Devon and Cornwall close to hand. The co-educational school has been at the forefront of education in South West England since 1877. Good teaching, with a variety of activities and a high standard of care, underpins our educational aims. You can see the success in this approach through our GCSE and A Level results, which are consistently above the national average.
