The Crest Academy is a secondary school with academy status located in Neasden, Brent, North West London. The school opened in September 2014 replacing Crest Girls' Academy, Crest Boys' Academy and Crest Sixth Form. The Crest Academy serves the local communities of Neasden, Dollis Hill and Cricklewood. The school was the centre of controversy in June 2015 when the leadership of the school scrapped the retention of single gender teaching, instead opting for a co-educational, integrated model against the wishes of some parents.
The Crest Academy is sponsored by E-ACT. who provide support through a Systems Leader, who challenges and supports the academy. The Crest Academy's System Leader is Dame Joan McVittie. The academy has undergone a transformation with a significant increase in GCSE results, achieving 53% 5A*-C including English & Maths in 2016, reversing a period of decline at the school.
