Welcome to The JCB Academy
The JCB Academy is an exciting new school for students from the age of 14 who are interested in business and engineering.
 
Jim Wade
Principal
This is the first of a brand new kind of school in the United Kingdom, focused on delivering high-quality engineering and business education. Our motto is 'Developing engineers and business leaders for the future' and our aim is to ensure that our students have every chance to achieve success, whether they continue into further education, or move to further learning in the world of work when they leave here.
At The JCB Academy, the curriculum and learning techniques are unique, allowing students to combine theory with practical activities: putting learning into practice in our purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities. Our students all benefit from a wide range of extension activities, allowing them exceptional opportunities to pursue many different interests outside the main curriculum.
Our hours are more like business hours than normal schools and sixth form colleges, but the curriculum encourages a structured and effective use of time, meaning that there should be very little – if any – homework in years 10 and 11! (Sixth formers will have some homework, but probably less than other schools)
This progressive, 21st Century approach to education has some very traditional values at heart and at The JCB Academy we place huge emphasis on self-discipline, good behaviour, uniform, teamwork and co-operation.
You can learn more about The JCB Academy on this website, or by asking for our prospectus.
