Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in Runcorn in the English county of Cheshire.[1]

The school was previously known as Brookvale Comprehensive School, which was renamed Halton High School after Norton Priory School merged with Brookvale. Halton High School converted to academy status in September 2010 and was renamed Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy. Though it is no longer a community school directly administered by Halton Borough Council, Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy continues to coordinate with Halton Borough Council for admissions.

Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy is named after Henry Bolingbroke, who became King Henry IV of England.[2] The school is sponsored by the Ormiston Academies Trust and the University of Chester.[3]
