Established in 2014,[3] Chapeltown Academy offers A-level courses to students. It is currently located in a new purpose-designed building at the Hydra Business Park.[4] It was previously based at Thorncliffe Hall in the Thorncliffe Industrial Estate.

It has come under criticism as of late, however, as it has recently lost some highly qualified teachers due to decisions to save money - this has precipitated a group of students to create an organisation which attempts to hold the Academy to account. They seem to call themselves Chapeltown Alumni.[5]
