The Academy is an "all through" school, with about 800 students from ages 4 to 16. The Academy opened in September 2008 on two sites, moving into a single new building in September 2009. Previously the school site was Pennywell Comprehensive School. The old school building on the same site, built in 1967, was demolished in 2009.

Pennywell Comprehensive School was built in 1967, however in 2008 the school converted to academy status and was renamed Academy 360. In the same year the school relocated to a new building on the same site. The old building was demolished.
