What’s In A Name?

Why Scott College…

A bust of the famous Plymouth explorer Robert Falcon Scott has been the centrepiece of the entrance to Stoke Damerel Community College for many years.

As the new studio school is sponsored by Stoke Damerel, Scott College seemed an obvious choice.

“We have consulted widely with students, staff and our studio school partners and considered a variety of names and Scott College was the clear winner”

Carol Hannaford, principal of Stoke Damerel Community College

“Many people remember the name of Scott Hospital with that clear link to medicine and health,” said Mrs Hannaford.

“Choosing the name of such a renowned explorer also resonates with the studio school’s spirit of discovery while marking its links to its sponsor school.”
