The school is situated on the site of the former 'Priorsdean' Hospital for infectious diseases, which was established in 1884. Miltoncross School opened on the site in September 1999, but did not move to the building it is housed in until 2000. Previously a community school administered by Portsmouth City Council, Miltoncross school converted to academy status on 1 November 2014 and was renamed Miltoncross Academy. The school is sponsored by The Kemnal Academies Trust, but continues to coordinate with Portsmouth City Council for admissions.
