Eston Park Academy (formerly Eston Park School) is a mixed academy and sixth form in Teesville, Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, England. It has merged with neighbouring Gillbrook Academy[1] and will form part of a new single Hillsview Academy in September 2014.[2] Both schools and the new merged academy are run by the Academies Enterprise Trust.

It had five houses: Durham, Lincoln, Ripon, York and Normanby (the house for the Sixth Form).

Ofsted and academic achievement[edit]

In December 2009, the Ofsted report rated the school as "good", one that "provides a good standard of education and one that is improving under the positive leadership of the headteacher".[3] Ofsted stated that "the school is determined that all students should be enabled to fulfil their dreams by developing into the business and community leaders of tomorrow". In May 2013 the school was judged inadequate by Ofsted.[4]

On 1 January 2012, the school became an academy. Neighbouring Gillbrook College also become an academy and is now Gillbrook Academy.[5]
