Gillbrook Academy (formerly Gillbrook College) was a mixed academy and sixth form in Teesville, Redcar and Cleveland, North Yorkshire. It merged with neighbouring Eston Park Academy in September 2014[1] and now forms part of a new single Hillsview Academy.[2]


The academy was to the south of Eston Sports Academy on Normanby Road just off the trunk road (A1085) intersection, in the Anglican parish of Christ Church, with both Eston Park Academy, whose playing fields were adjoined, and Redcar & Cleveland Council Town Hall nearby.


Its students came from Normanby and Teesville, neighbouring towns and villages, and nearby Eston with the latter taking a sizeable part in the school enrolment, which before closure was around 1250, including 400 in the sixth form.


Grammar school[edit]

It opened in September 1955 as Eston Grammar School in Teesville with 650 boys and girls. The school motto was Sapera Aude (dare to know).


It became known as Gillbrook School in 1973, then Gillbrook Technology College, then Gilbrook College. Between 1994 and 2006, it was a technology college, and in 2009, it became an arts college.
