The school was founded as John Kelly Boys' Technology College in 1958 and is set in pleasant and extensive grounds. The school is served by a number of bus routes (332, 245, 182, 16) and is local to Neasden and Dollis Hill Underground stations.
John Kelly Boys' Technology College turned into an academy on 1 September 2009, and became Crest Boys' Academy (sponsored by E-ACT). The school is situated next to Crest Girls' Academy, and both schools share a sixth form.
A recent Ofsted report in June 2013 placed the school in special measures claiming it offered an inadequate standard of education. The Academy has recently undergone a restructure with both new teaching and leadership appointments to drive forward standards. The Crest Boys' Academy has now merged with the Crest Girls' Academy and Crest Sixth Form and is now The Crest Academies. The Crest Academies moved into an all new £40,000,000 building in September 2014.
