The school school was first created as Easington Comprehensive school in 1978, as a reult of a merger between Easington Secondary Modern School and Murton Secondary Modern School. The school was later renamed Easington Community School, and then Easington Community Science College in January 2007 after becoming a specialist science college.
The school has become an academy school, and is now known as Easington Academy.
The school has around 70 classrooms, which include Science, English, Maths, Modern Foreign Languages, Information Communication Technology, Drama, Physical Education, History, Geography, Religious Education, Design and Technology, Statistics, Media, Art and Music.
There is a curved building to the left of the main building known as 'The Studio'. It was formerly a Music facility, but has been recently refurbished into two art classrooms, a computer suite and a dark room.
There is a sports hall, dance studio, an AstroTurf football pitch, a M.U.G.A. (multi-use games area), a cricket pitch, athletics field and four full size football pitches.
Within the sports hall, there is a climbing wall, 2 5-aside football goals, and cricket batting net facilities, 2 trampolines, a climbing frame, table tennis facilities and a gym.
The school has recently gone through a rebuild, with a brand new building with older refurbished buildings. It includes an auditorium, dance studio, recording facilities, new Science labs, a new Technology department, a new cafeteria and a new Music department.
The school's house names are based on the family surnames most affected in the 1951 Easington Colliery pit disaster; points are allocated in school assemblies, performances, etc.
