Today it is home to Peterborough United ’s Youth Training Academy, and has strong links with the club. Olympic swimming medallist Brian Brinkley is also one of its most famous former pupils.

The school was built in the grounds of Orton Hall as Orton Longueville Grammar School in 1959. It was originally Fletton Grammar School in Old Fletton before the move to the new site.
