North Liverpool Academy is an academy secondary school in Liverpool, L5 0SQ, England.[1] It was the result of the merging of Anfield Community Comprehensive School and Breckfield Community Comprehensive School onto one campus in September 2006. The campus originally belonged to Anfield community comprehensive school. The school specialises in business and enterprise as well as computing and mathematics. A new £40 million site has been constructed on nearby Heyworth Street .[2] The new school building on Heyworth Street is now fully built and is ready for the students to move into at the start of the new term.

The sixth form received a grade 1 in the most recent Ofsted report. The sixth form is a collaborative department with Notre Dame Catholic College and Alsop High School. This means students have a wider range of courses to choose from. The sixth form offers a vast curriculum, ranging from vocational courses to A levels. The school is believed to be one of the most improved schools in the North-west of England. The school is ranked 25th in the whole of the UK.

North Liverpool Academy is a sponsor of Liverpool Life Sciences UTC, a new university technical college (UTC) opening in September 2013. The UTC will specialise in life sciences and healthcare, and is also sponsored by the University of Liverpool.[3]
