The school was formed in September 2012 from the merger of Brackenbury Infant School, Grove Infant School, Southwell County Primary School, Underhill Community Junior School and Royal Manor Arts College.[2] As an academy, the school is sponsored by The Aldridge Foundation and Dorset County Council,[3] and has specialisms in Environmental Science and in Sports Science.[2] A sixth form was opened in September 2015[4] and is Dorset's first.

Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy offers GCSEs and BTECs as programmes of study for pupils, while students in the sixth form have the option to study from a range of A Levels and further BTECs.[5]

A new campus, Maritime House, is currently in construction and is due to open in September 2016.[6]
