Eston Park Academy (formerly Eston Park School) was a mixed academy and sixth form in Teesville, Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, England. It merged with neighbouring Gillbrook Academy in September 2014[1] and now forms part of a new single Hillsview Academy.[2] The new merged academy is run by the Academies Enterprise Trust (as were the two former schools).

It had five houses: Durham, Lincoln, Ripon, York and Normanby (the house for the Sixth Form).


Sarah Metcalfe Comprehensive School on Burns Road, a former secondary modern school, closed in 1991 and became Eston Park School.

Ofsted and academic achievement[edit]

In December 2009, the Ofsted report rated the school as "good", one that "provides a good standard of education and one that is improving under the positive leadership of the headteacher".[3] Ofsted stated that "the school is determined that all students should be enabled to fulfil their dreams by developing into the business and community leaders of tomorrow". In May 2013 the school was judged inadequate by Ofsted.[4]

On 1 January 2012, the school became an academy. Neighbouring Gillbrook College also become an academy and was renamed Gillbrook Academy.[5]
