It was originally known as Highfield High School. In 2004 the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) awarded the school specialist school status as a Humanities College, focusing on the teaching and study of History, Geography and Religious Education. The school was subsequently renamed Highfield Humanities College.
In August/September 2012 the school moved into a new building on the old playing field. The old school building, which stood for nearly eighty years, was demolished shortly after.
Previously a community school administered by Blackpool Borough Council, in April 2016 Highfield Humanities College closed and converted to academy status and was renamed Highfield Leadership Academy. The school is now part of the Tauheedul Education Trust but continues to coordinate with Blackpool Borough Council for admissions.
