About Us

Mildenhall College (of Technology) became an academy on 1st July 2013 with the Academy Transformation Trust.
Founded in 1976 and formerly an upper school with pupils aged 13-18 Mildenhall College took on two additional year groups in September 2012 under Suffolk County Council’s re-organisation of schools, becoming a community 11-18 (mixed) school. It currently has 1050 students on roll (200 in the Sixth Form). The academy operates across a split-site with Years 7 to 11 at the main site (Bury Road) and the Sixth Form in its own specialist Sixth Form Centre, MCA6, at Sheldrick Way.

Mildenhall College Academy serves a semi-rural area and over half of our youngsters travel to the academy by bus. In order to assist students who want to stay for after school activities, of which there are many, the academy provides free ‘late’ transport home.
