History

The school opened in September 1966 and became a comprehensive school in September 1973. The school's application to become a Specialist Technology college was granted in 1997.

Transport

Due to its size, of approximately 1500 students, the school operates a contracted bus system with City of York Council and Stephenson's, which provides free transport (with a purchased pass, so technically not free) for some of the outlying villages in Huntington's catchment area, such as Strensall and Flaxton.
