Tavistock College is a mixed gender school in Tavistock, Devon, England, with students aged 11–18. There are (as of April 2010) approximately 1500 students attending, drawn from a catchment area of about 20 km (12 mi) radius. The college has links with Japan, Uganda, Spain and India, with staff exchanges and student visits and projects. Since 2006, the college has organised concerts locally under the name of ParkLife; a ParkLife festival was held in 2007 and 2008.


In early 2010, the school received a "notice to improve" from Ofsted, the school inspection agency.

In 2013, a teacher who teaches Japanese won the so-called "teachers' Oscar" for secondary teacher of the year.
