The academy was first formed in September 2008, replacing Heartsease High School. Originally housed in the buildings of the former school, Open Academy relocated to new buildings in September 2010. It is a Christian school that is sponsored by the Bishop of Norwich and businessman Graham Dacre.
Open Academy was formerly a part of The Kett Sixth Form College consortium, which also includes Sprowston Community High School and Sewell Park College. The Kett operates as a separate entity to its host schools. As of 2013, the Academy gained a separate Sixth Form, to be known as OA6 which is led by Nigel Youngman. OA6 is a small, but growing Sixth Form, offering a variety of A-Levels and BTECs.
