In 2007 work began on a new secondary school on the same site, to replace the current buildings, and re-opened in September 2008. This work resulted in the demolition of two school buildings which had been constructed only a few years earlier, as they could not be incorporated into the new campus.
Huntcliff Secondary School is now based on Saltburn Learning Campus.
In September 2009, Saltburn Primary School (whose previous buildings were based in two separate locations in the town) joined Huntcliff School within a separate wing of Saltburn Learning Campus - this was officially opened by author Gervase Phinn. Saltburn Children's Centre is also based on the campus grounds.
Huntcliff School currently has around 510 students on roll, consisting of those from Saltburn and its surrounding areas.
It offers a variety of curriculum subjects, including the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, as well as History, Geography, Art & Design, Technology, ICT, Performing Arts, Modern Foreign Languages, PE, Sport Science, Life Skills, and Media Studies. Additional subjects were previously available to students, such as AS Level Politics and Further Maths.
Huntcliff School has a secure partnership with the No. 17 Middle School in Bao Ding, China, which has been established for at least 3 years. In 2010, Huntcliff students and staff visited their partner school for a 10-day-long visit. Every year since the partnership, students and staff from the partner school have visited Huntcliff School and met people from the local community.
