Hagley Park Academy was originally founded as Hagley Park County Secondary Modern in 1955[1] and was located in Rugeley, Staffordshire. Later it was rebuilt and changed its name to Hagley Park Sports College,[2] becoming Hagley Park Academy between 2011 - 2015. This was a mixed secondary school which was part of the Creative Education Trust, along with Fair Oak Academy and Rugeley Sixth Form Academy.[3]

In November 2015 the Creative Education Trust launched a consultation on the possibility of merging its academies in Rugeley. The plans would see the new school operating over two sites, with pupils in academic years 7, 8 and 9 housed at the existing Fair Oak Academy site as a lower school and years 10, 11, 12 and 13 housed at the existing Hagley Park Academy site as an upper school. The merger commenced on September 2016,[4] and The Hart School opened in its place, using the Hagley Park site to house 'Upper School' years (10, 11 ,12 and 13).
