The school was formed in November 2011 as a result of a merger of Gleed Boys' School and Gleed Girls' Technology College. The two schools were merged because falling rolls were forecast in this part of Lincolnshire. It is named after Sir John Wilson Gleed, M.A., J.P. (1865-1946) -who was Chairman of the Holland Education Committee and of Holland County Council. He was knighted for political and public service by King George VI on 13 June 1939.
The school was converted to academy status in January 2013 and it is now part of the CfBT Schools Trust. The school operates a vocational sixth form. It was placed in "special measures" by Ofsted on 10 June 2013 ;having been judged as being "inadequate" for achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behavior and safety of pupils, leadership and management.

It is hoped that by joining forces educational standards could be improved, a wider curriculum offered and the school’s future secured at a time when pupil numbers are expected to fall.
