About James Calvert Spence College

James Calvert Spence College welcomes students from Y5 through to sixth form.  We firmly believe in the potential of every single student and our aim is for all our students to leave us as well rounded, confident individuals with the self-belief to go out into the world and make the most of every opportunity.

Working as one school means our students experiences a seamless transition between phases.  From a child joining us in Y5 through to becoming an adult in sixth form, JCSC provides a stimulating, relevant curriculum, driven by student need, that provides pathways to employment, education or training for all our students.

We Navigate

We trust and empower our staff to make the right decisions.  We all know what we are accountable for and we stick to the rules.  We don't seek to blame, but to learn.  We are fair and ethical, gaining the respect of others through acting with integrity.  We work at pace, but collaboratively, building effective relationships.  We promote simplicity, innovation and learning to get the best results.

We Illuminate

We exceed people's expectations with our can-do attitude.  We encourage and listen to others' views, needs and suggestions.  We are imaginative about better ways of delivering services and work together to achieve the best results.  We exhibit and encourage a sense of pride in the achievement of our personal, team and organisational goals.

We Shelter

We provide clarity of expectation of behaviours and how these behaviours create a positive, open and honest environment,.  We support the diversity of teams and trust others to fulfill their responsibilities.  We build and maintain relationships with each other, students, parents and the wider community and encourage others to do the same.
