The academy was established in 2011 following the closure of The St Guthlac's School in Crowland and George Farmer Technology and Language College in Holbeach (formerly named George Farmer Secondary School). The academy has been created with the sponsorship of the University of Lincoln which already runs its National Centre for Food Manufacturing directly next to the campus site of the former George Farmer Technology and Language College in Holbeach.

The creation of the academy has been controversial particularly in the Crowland area as the town will no longer have its own Secondary Education institution.

The new school building was completed on the old George Farmer site on 4 November 2013.[1]

In 2014 UAH became part of the Lincolnshire Educational Trust MAT along with Holbeach Primary Academy (2015) and Gosberton House Academy (2016). The Chair of the LET was Professor J Scott Davidson of the University of Lincoln and the CEO was Mr Andrew Breckon. And now (2019) The Peele Community College in Long Sutton is University Academy of Long Sutton which is linked with UAH.
