Desborough College is a secondary school with academy status located on Shoppenhangers Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire, England. Until 2009 it was an all-boys school, however, the Sixth form has since become co-educational. It was founded as Maidenhead County Grammar School in 1894 under its first Headmaster Mr A. E. Brooks. In the 1970s reform in the Royal Borough ensured all schools converted to the then new comprehensive schools system, which prompted the School’s name change to Desborough School after Lord Desborough, a prominent Maidonian. For the second time in the School’s history it changed status in 2012 becoming an academy school, and changed its name to Desborough College. As part of its academy status it is partnered with the independent Radley College, Microsoft and The John Lewis Partnership.
