Macmillan Academy is an academy in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, England. The school was founded in 1989 as the Macmillan City Technology College, one of the first of 15 City Technology Colleges established in England. Its initial sponsors were the Macmillan Trust, a charity run by Macmillan Publishers,[1][2] The school converted to academy status in 2006. An Ofsted inspection in 2007 rated the school as outstanding.[3] In 2013 the school received a downgraded good judgement.[4]
