The Academy is sponsored by Delta Academies trust who also support many other schools in Doncaster.


The school changed its name (from Northcliffe School) in September 2009, when it became an academy and moved into a new building in 2013.[1] Previously it had been Northcliffe School, a secondary modern school.

The school was the centre of controversy in the early 2000s due to a proposal to convert it into an academy run by the Emmanuel Schools Foundation, a Christian charity. The proposal was withdrawn in 2004 after legal threats by the National Secular Society.[2][3]

Doncaster Collegiate Sixth Form

The school is part of the Doncaster Collegiate Sixth Form which combines the sixth form offering from Ash Hill Academy, De Warenne Academy, Don Valley Academy, Rossington All Saints Academy and Serlby Park Academy.[4]
