About The JCB Academy

The JCB Academy was established in 2010 and is governed by a charitable trust, established by JCB. The JCB Academy board members consist of the Principal, Jim Wade and a board of Governors.

The building
The JCB Academy is based in a carefully adapted and renovated mill, which (appropriately) was built by the famous industrial entrepreneur and engineer, Richard Arkwright, in the late 18th Century.

The academy is sponsored by JCB and, alongside other businesses including Bentley Motors, Network Rail and Rolls-Royce, they form our Core Challenge Partners who together develop our unique curriculum and learning techniques. You can contact JCB at the below registered office address.
