World Class Schools Quality Mark
Ivybridge Community College
South West’s first
World Class School
Ivybridge Community College was already established as an outstanding school, achieving six consecutive Ofsted assessments, and now it’s been placed among the UK’s very best.
As a result of this, the College was able to apply for World Class Status in 2016 and now is the only South West school to achieve the World Class School Quality Mark. This accolade is awarded to those that go above and beyond Ofsted’s highest standards.
World Class Schools is an award in which a school is recognised as ‘Beyond Outstanding’. It is the calibre of the student which proves the calibre of the school. If the school is truly World Class then the students will be able to own and demonstrate World Class qualities.
A World Class student
- Is highly literate scientifically, mathematically, technologically and culturally.

- Is an excellent learner, dedicated to life- long learning.
- Is a compelling candidate in their field for higher education and/or employment, being globally aware, confident and prepared for life in an international environment.
Having demonstrated their World Class skills during the accreditation process, students are automatically eligible to join the Alumni Association.
