Coleridge Community College is a secondary academy school with 600 places for children aged 11–16, situated on Radegund Road, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England. The school is now a member of the Parkside Federation[1] along with Parkside Community College. Previously, it had been placed on special measures, and was due to be closed. However, its most recent Ofsted report[2] rated it overall as "broadly average".

Originally two segregated schools, the Coleridge Secondary Modern School for Boys was located in the right half and the Coleridge Secondary Modern School for Girls in the left half of the mirror-image twin main building, with a separate dedicated gymnasium located behind the Girls' school, and prefabricated classroom outbuildings surrounding its internal playing fields at the rear of the Boys' school. The two schools were merged into a Comprehensive School from the 1966 school year as part of the national reorganisation of secondary and grammar schools.[citation needed]
