NEU Strike Action

The JCB Academy will remain open during the strike action on the dates affecting schools in this area: 1 February, 1 March, 15 March, 16 March.


The JCB Academy was the first of a brand new kind of school in the UK when it opened in 2010. We teach learners technical, scientific, and business subjects in a whole new way and are educating the inventors, engineers, health scientists, and business and finance leaders of tomorrow, with a motto of 'Changing lives by developing the engineers and business leaders of the future.’

We have purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities, and a unique curriculum, with a progressive, 21st Century approach to education. Traditional values are at the heart of The JCB Academy and we place a huge emphasis on self-discipline, good behaviour, uniform, teamwork, and co-operation.
