The JCB Academy is an innovative school for students aged 14-18 with an interest in engineering and/or business.

The JCB Academy opened its doors in September 2010 as the first of a brand new kind of school in the UK, with a focus on delivering high-quality engineering and business education.

In our purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities we provide a world class educational experience, which has been specifically designed to ensure young people achieve top grades and develop the key skills essential for success in the world of work. Our motto is ‘Developing engineers and business leaders for the future’.

Our curriculum and learning are unique, allowing students to combine theory with practical activities and encourages a structured and effective use of time, meaning that there should be very little (if any) homework in years 10 and 11!

This progressive, 21st Century approach to education has some very traditional values at heart and we place huge emphasis on self-discipline, co-operation, good behaviour, uniform and teamwork. Our hours are more like business hours than normal schools and sixth form colleges.
