Torquay Academy is an over-subscribed non-selective 11 to 18 school in Torquay, Devon, England. Prior to 1 September 2012 it was known as Torquay Community College. The academy is part of a Multi-Academy Trust in partnership with Torquay Boys' Grammar School.[1]

The head teacher is Steve Margetts.[2] In January 2010, the school moved into a new building[3] as part of the Building Schools for the Future scheme.[4] In March 2012, a short film about the school's innovative design was made by ITN and broadcast at the Building Schools Exhibition and Conference.[5]
