Top added value scores

We are proud to be the top performing School in Plymouth and the surrounding area for our value-added scores. Our 3 year average of +0.29 means that our pupils made more progress between the end of key stage 4 and the end of their A level studies, compared to similar students across England. Our performance puts us in the top 20% of schools and we continue to focus on supporting all our pupils to exceed their potential.  

2019 Results Day

Plymouth College pupils celebrated outstanding A level results again in 2019 with 76% of grades in all qualifications at A*-C or equivalent.

There were many notable performances by pupils, particularly in STEM subjects. Particularly outstanding results were achieved by Tom Beagley with an impressive 3 A*s, Tommy Osrin with A*A*A and an A* in his EPQ and Imogen Smerdon with A*AA and an A* in her EPQ.

As well as A Level results the College is also celebrating outstanding results from its Sports Baccalaureate Programme, a BTEC-based course.

Jonathan Cohen, Headmaster, said:

“I am incredibly proud of our Sixth Form pupils, who emerge from their Plymouth College education not only with these fantastic exam results but also as rounded, confident young men and women. This is made possible by the hard work of the pupils themselves and the dedication of our talented teaching staff. Excellent teaching and support in small classes ensures that every pupil fulfils their academic and intellectual potential and are prepared for the next step in their educational journey. At Plymouth College we strive to educate, enrich and empower every single one of our pupils and our exceptional exam results and performance in the value-added league tables demonstrates our commitment to providing educational excellence both in and out of the classroom.”
