This is a great opportunity to join a highly successful school as part of a friendly and very hard working department. Established as a brand new school in 2002, we moved into our award-winning £30 million accommodation in 2005. The school is located within easy reach of central London via the District Line and yet just minutes by car from the Essex countryside. In May 2013, Ofsted described the school as good with outstanding leadership and governance.

They stated that JRCS offers “an exceptionally caring and challenging education to enable all its students to ‘ACHIEVE’.” They stated that JRCS offers “an exceptionally caring and challenging education to enable all its students to ‘ACHIEVE’.” The report also stated that the promotion of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding and takes into account students’ equality of opportunity. OFSTED also said that “teaching in the sixth form is consistently good or better”. The school is highly over-subscribed with well over 1,100 expressions of preference for the 300 spaces available in Year 7 for this year.
Last summer we achieved our highest ever KS4 results with 64% of our Year 11 students achieving A*-C grades including English and Maths. The results achieved by academic and vocational Sixth Form students remained significantly above national averages.
We pride ourselves in being a truly inclusive school that actively promotes ‘Success for All’.
We hold the highest academic standards and offer our students a wide range of opportunities to pursue their studies both inside and outside the classroom. Our extensive range of extra-curricular activities and trips is second to none and ensures all students get the chance to extend their academic, social and cultural experiences outside of the classroom. The Student Development Department (SDD) is staffed by a SENCO and a team of co-educators. The department includes an Alternative Resource Provision (ARP) which works with students on the autistic spectrum. This is an excellent opportunity to join a team of staff who work to support SEND students across the school. Our Value Added for SEN S students was Sig + at 1031.3 and progress of our EHCP student progress was in line with National. The department works to support students both in and out of lessons. There are a number of alternative success pathways for students in Key Stage 4.
