Ridgeway School (soon to be Plympton Academy)(formerly The Ridgeway School and, before that, Plympton County Secondary School) is a state secondary school in Plympton, Plymouth, England. It is a mixed, non-denominational academy school specializing in science and mathematics.

Its designated feeder primary schools are Chaddlewood Primary School, Glen Park Primary School, Plympton St Maurice Primary School, and Yealmpstone County Primary School, although other primary schools also send children to Ridgeway.

The school has a sports centre, which includes a fitness gym, multiple sports hall, cricket pitch, rugby pitch, and in the summer, an athletics grass circuit. The sports hall has been renovated last year (2015). The sports hall and gym is open to the public for a small fee.

The school also has an internal post-16 department which accepts students from all schools across the Plymouth consortium.
