History[edit]

The school opened on September 1, 2010 with a new £24 million building being built on the Egerton Park site, delivered through the borough's £300m Building Schools for the Future (BSF) project. The school is a merger of two other schools in the area that closed on August 31, 2010: Egerton Park Arts College and Two Trees Sports College. The school operated on two sites until on 10 January 2012 when the new school building opened to students.
