Torpoint Community College is situated in the South-East of Cornwall and very much a part of the local community. The College is located in Cornwall but due to its proximity, enjoys close links with the urban area of Plymouth city. This results in a rich mix of urban and rural, village and city based students and the College is very much an economic driver for the area.
A majority of students attending the College live in the Torpoint and Rame Peninsula with a number of students travelling from Plymouth via the ferry over the River Tamar. The current number on roll is approx. 650, of which approximately 110 are in the Sixth Form.
TCC has a thriving Sixth Form offering a wide range of AS and A Level subjects as well as Vocational courses for post 16 students and the number of students taking up places at TCC have risen year on year. We work in partnership with other schools and colleges in the area and are an integral partner in the South East Cornwall Learning Partnership (SECLP).
The College works closely with our partner and feeder schools. Our designated primary schools are from the Torpoint and Rame Peninsula:
- Carbeile Junior School, Torpoint
- Fourlanesend Community Primary School, Cawsand
- St Nicolas C of E VA School, Downderry
- Millbrook C of E VA Primary School, Millbrook

We also enjoy links with Torpoint Nursery and Infant School, St Germans Primary School and other primary schools in Plymouth.
