The school is located within the parish boundaries of Brayton, although its catchment area also covers other local villages and extends into parts of Selby.
Brayton High School opened in 1979 and was awarded Technology College status in 2001. It was renamed Brayton College in line with the Technology specialism, but in 2009 reverted to its original name and a new uniform. The school was re-designated as a lead specialist technology school in the Selby area again in 2009.
The school has reduced in size in recent years, once having had a student population of over 1000.
The school joined the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust in 2016, being re-named as Brayton Academy after it was found to fail its students (based on exam results) and indeed of significant investment after Ex headteacher Mike Roper jumped the ship.
In the school's first Ofsted Inspection since joining the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust it was graded as 'Outstanding' in all areas by Ofsted when inspected in June 2019.
