The JCB Academy was established in September 2010, the first of a brand new kind of school in the UK, with a focus on delivering high-quality engineering and business education.
Since opening we have been consistently successful - our first Ofsted inspection, in May 2014, recognised us as a “Good” school with “outstanding” features, including progress in mathematics, engineering and vocational courses and the dedication to keeping learners safe and secure. Learner numbers are growing - we have been oversubscribed every year, including for entry this September. Currently we cater for approximately 580 full time learners aged 14-18 as well as approximately 300 learners aged 16+ following apprenticeships. We have exciting plans to expand further due to the demand for places; this will include Y9 for the first time from September 2018.
We are looking for a dynamic, well qualified Teacher of English to commence from the start of the new academic year 2018.
