About Us

The Misbourne officially opened on 20 January 1956 and was the first modern built secondary school in the UK. Over the years the school has expanded and developed to include many more facilities and buildings for our students and staff, retaining its modern, open feel.

In January 2018, The Misbourne converted to a single academy. Today, we are a multi-cultural, co-educational school with 1,021 students currently on roll: one hundred and eighty students in each year group 7-11 and 170 in our growing Sixth Form. The Misbourne has more than 100 teaching and support staff who work as a team to achieve our mutual goals.

The Misbourne enjoys a spacious and attractive campus which provides purpose- built, subject specific areas, tennis courts and extensive playing fields. The academy is fortunate to have a new building for the Sixth Form, English department and café; three new IT suites and a multi-million pound development for a brand new sports centre is currently under construction. The school also provides staff parking.
