Previously administered by Derby City Council, Sinfin Community School converted to academy status in September 11, 2001 and was renamed City of Derby Academy. The school is now part of QEGSMAT (Multi Academy Trust)[2]

City of Derby Academy offers GCSEs and vocational subjects as programmes of study for pupils.[3]

The school is smaller than the average sized secondary school and has a capacity of 1050. The proportion of students whose first language is not English is nearly half, which is well above average. The proportion of students from ethnic minority backgrounds is also above half - Romany and Pakistani heritages being the largest.

The building boasts excellent equipment, previously being a specialist technology school. There is also a large Astro Turf sports pitch, a large indoor sports hall, multiple tennis courts and a gymnasium.
