Petroc is a further education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) college in Devon, England, with a catchment area covering more than 1,500 square miles (3,900 km2). It also has the largest A-level sixth form in North Devon. The college serves up to 11,000 students each year, on a wide range of full and part-time courses (from entry level to higher education in partnership with Plymouth University), including distance learning and work-based training.

Petroc was formerly North Devon College and East Devon College. The institutions merged on 1 August 2008, and were renamed as Petroc.[1] The college is named after St Petroc, the patron saint of the Devon flag.

In 2015 the college was graded ‘good’ by Ofsted.[2] In 2017 it was rated as Silver within the Teaching Excellence Framework.[3]
