Gloucester Academy, formerly the Central Technology College, started life as a boys school located in Derby Road, Gloucester, England. It converted to and academy in September 2010. It educates 825 students aged 11 to 19.


Mrs H. Anthony took over the role of Headmistress from E. Cole in 2006. The incorporation of the Ninestiles Foundation, and Sir D. Hutt improved the school's reputation. The Multi Use Games Area (M.U.G.A) sports facility was opened in 2007. The Central Technology College was closed in 2010 to make way for a new academy. For now the old central technology college located in Cotteswold Road is being used as the temporary academy pending a new building.

As an academy, the school was previously part of the Prospects Academies Trust. However in May 2014 the trust folded and Gloucester Academy is expected to join another academy group in the near future.[1]
