The school was formed in 1983 by the amalgamation of two schools, Christopher Whitehead Boys School and Christopher Whitehead Girls School.

To add to the confusion, the 1950s School building originally housed both the Boys and Girls school, separate entrances were used. It has been substantially modernised and re-equipped since its formation.HousesSince September 2007, the school was divided into six houses. Each pupil wears a coloured tie of their corresponding house. Pupils now share their forms with approximately 5 pupils from each year at the school in the same house. The houses are: Da Vinci, Pankhurst, Shakespeare, Curie, Brunel, and Seacole.
