The Priory City of Lincoln Academy, is a co-educational secondary school within The Priory Federation of Academies, in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on Skellingthorpe Road. It has around 1,000 pupils and admits around 160 pupils a year.
It was originally the City School, Lincoln, and moved from its original site on Monks Road, Lincoln in 1968. In 1973 boys were transferred from the former Sincil Secondary Modern School and in 1974 it became a co-educational Comprehensive School and was known as City of Lincoln Community College before becoming an academy in September 2008.The school is part of The Priory Federation of Academies Trust. along with The Priory Witham Academy, The Priory Ruskin Academy and The Priory Academy LSST. The main part of the old School Building was completed in 1975 to designs by Associated Architects of Birmingham and was described in the Buildings of England as having an arresting sawtooth rhythm along the roof, repeated in the window heads and canopy. 
With federation membership, a multimillion pound redevelopment of the site was initiated, with work commencing in 2010 and completed in 2012.
The academy has a sports centre which has a swimming pool, fitness suite, gym, Sportshall, Dance Studio and outside there is a field and the MUGA (multi use games area) which is used for many different sports. In mid-2014 a 3G artificial pitch was opened.
