Ethos

An ethos of world-class standards
At The JCB Academy we provide a world-class educational experience, which has been specifically designed to ensure young people achieve top grades and develop the key lifeskills essential for success in the world of work and in society.

Values

We intend to develop:

  • A ‘can-do-will-do’ attitude
    Develop high levels of emotional intelligence, competencies and attitudes in a demanding but supportive environment.
  • Pursuit of technical and academic excellence
    Develop high levels of emotional intelligence, competencies and attitudes in a demanding but supportive environment.
  • Achieving through actions
    Develop innovative curriculum responses which provide direct access to real and virtual workplace learning.
  • Passion for quality
    Establish a culture which recognises and strives for excellence at every level of an organisation.
  • Creative and enterprising behaviour
    Develop innovative staffing models and learning environments which flex to enable creative responses to learning.
  • Team and leadership capacity
    Sharpen students’ appetite for assuming responsibility within teams and as leaders.

Taking responsibility and developing leadership

It is recognised that young people who take responsibility for their own learning and environment grow into more successful adults. Therefore, The JCB Academy works hard to encourage this within the student body. Students are encouraged to take an active part in the Student Council, including controlling the delegated budget. Students can also take on a range of leadership roles ranging from leading within the engineering challenge activities, becoming prefects, mentoring other students or applying to take on the responsibility of becoming Head Boy or Head Girl.
