About The JCB Academy
The JCB Academy's mission is changing lives by developing the engineers and business leaders of the future. To do this we work tirelessly to ensure that those entrusted into our care have every chance to achieve success. It is important that learners achieve well academically to ensure that they can compete in the marketplace for higher education places and employment. It is also important that we work to develop those core skills essential for success, not just in the world of work but also in life. The JCB Academy looks to ensure that all learning enables young people to develop:
- Can do/positive attitudes.
- The desire to achieve through actions.
- Creative and enterprising behaviours.
- A willingness to learn in the pursuit of technical and academic excellence.
- Team work and leadership capability.
We have high expectations of each and every learner who will join us. Great store is placed upon self-discipline, good behaviour, uniform, teamwork and cooperation. These traditional values are at the heart of all we undertake at The JCB Academy.
The JCB Academy is innovative, unique and unlike any other school, with learners from Y9 to Sixth Form and providing Intermediate (level 2) and Advanced (level 3) apprenticeship programmes. From 2022/23, we will be delivering an Engineering T-level which will provide learners with an additional qualification choice after their GCSEs. With cutting-edge facilities, world-leading partners and genuine industrial challenges that bring theory to life, our learners are equipped with aptitudes and skills that prestigious apprenticeship providers, universities and global companies look for in future business leaders and engineers.
We provide learners with a unique curriculum developed by the academy and its core partners. Working with the likes of Bosch Rexroth, Harper Adams University, JCB, Rolls‑Royce and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, we ensure that the curriculum is embedded in real industrial practice and includes genuine industrial challenges. Our aim is to provide a world class experience to learners and staff.
