It was founded as a boys' school in 1877 and became coeducational in 1995.HistoryThe school was established in 1877 and in 1896 it bought out its older rival Mannamead School, and was temporarily known as Plymouth and Mannamead College .The school's motto, Dat Deus Incrementum – God Gives The Increase, is the same as that of Westminster School, Marlborough College and Tonbridge School. In 1976, the first girls were admitted to the school's sixth form. It became fully coeducational in 1995, which also saw the end of Saturday morning lessons. In 2004, the school absorbed St Dunstan's Abbey School, an independent school for girls that had been founded by Lydia Sellon.

The preparatory school is a mile south-west, within the gated Millfields complex at Stonehouse.TodayPlymouth College is an independent school for pupils from the ages of 3 to 18.
