About Us

Welcome to Ivybridge Community College.

It is a privilege to be the Principal of Ivybridge Community College and to be given the opportunity to share my passion and enthusiasm for education in a high performing school.  Students, staff and those with governance at Ivybridge Community College are driven by the commitment to providing an excellent education for all students from 11 to 18 years old.  Students and staff at Ivybridge thrive because everyone matters and each individual is celebrated for all their gifts and talents.  Inherent in everything we do is a culture of high expectation and aspiration.  I am passionate about our children benefitting from a blend of education which creates a climate for them to succeed.

Our website provides a glimpse of how we look to deliver enjoyable and meaningful learning opportunities and shares our many successes at local, regional and national level across a range of curriculum and sporting excellence.

About us

Our Values and Ethos

“Ivybridge Community College aims to provide an integrated, comprehensive curriculum in an environment where the whole learning experience is one of opportunity, endeavour, achievement and excellence.”

Ivybridge Community College is a publicly funded non-fee paying mixed comprehensive secondary school for children in Ivybridge and the surrounding area.

The College teaches students from Years 7 to 13 (aged 11 to 18) and offers outstanding education for all.  We are highly ambitious and seek to maximise the potential of every child.

We are extremely proud that the College has received the great accolade of being the only school in the southwest of England to have achieved the World Class Schools Quality Mark Award.



Inherent in everything we do at the College is a culture of high expectations and aspirations.  Students are encouraged to develop a love of learning, to think for themselves and to maximise their full potential.  Consequently, the College actively appoints teachers with a strong sense of moral purpose and a desire to help all students.  We firmly believe that education can make a difference to the life chances of all young people.
