About the local area

Rocester is home to the world headquarters of JCB and the company is the main employer in the area. The close proximity of the school to the Alton Towers Theme Park and Resort and the Peak District National Park means tourism is an important part of the local economy. Uttoxeter Racecourse, home to the Midlands Grand National, also brings a lot of visitors to the town, as do the town centre’s shops and markets.
