Welcome to Coombe Dean Post 16 

Coombe Dean Post 16 is about building on the foundations laid at GCSE to explore new and familiar subjects in greater depth and detail and look towards higher education and training and, eventually, a career that suits you. Whether you have a clear plan right now or are still exploring what’s out there, we will help you to take that next step towards your future and will support you to find a programme of study that inspires and challenges you for the next two years. At Coombe Dean we provide a place to become the adult you aspire to be. We expect a lot from you in terms of commitment and hard work and in return we will support you in every way we can, every step of the way. 

With approximately 180 students on roll, we are an inclusive sixth form offering a range of academic routes and a selection of applied learning options to help students on their journey to the future they want to build. CDS Post 16 works in partnership with Plymstock School and Hele’s School to enable students to access a wide selection of academic and applied courses. 

Coombe Dean Post-16 is a place where you can explore interests and discover new talents, meet new friends and discover new abilities, and lay the foundations for the exciting futures you want.
