Stoke Damerel Community College is an academy school and maths and computing college in Stoke, Plymouth, England.

Stoke Damerel Community College was formed after the closure of Penlee Secondary Modern in the late 1980s. The school has recently had major building and refurbishment work completed to improve its entrance and create larger, more modern open spaces.

Work included "The Street", a large central corridor to help congestion and provide a social area for the students, an extended library with over a hundred flat screen computers, a larger and better equipped Sixth Form Common room and sports facilities. The school is on a hill with panoramic views of Plymouth and admits pupils from 11-18. The sixth form offers A levels, AS levels, and BTEC qualifications. The school has around 750 computers. The school is now an official trust school and in 2011 applied for academy status[1]
