Academy Testimonials

What our learners say about The JCB Academy.

Tim Glover from Branston in Burton-upon-Trent, said: “My time at The JCB Academy has been by far the best educational experience that I have had. All of the staff made me feel very welcome as well as providing me with experiences that I wouldn’t have even dreamt of at any other school”.


Megan Goodfellow from Littleover in Derby, who gained an A, B and a C, has secured her Higher Apprenticeship with Jaguar Land Rover, said: “I’m so happy with my results! The JCB Academy has helped start my amazing career at Jaguar Land Rover.”


Student Patrick Bill, 16 from Stafford achieved 8 A* – A and said:
“I’m really happy with my results, they will enable me to progress into The JCB Academy sixth form to continue my studies and look forward to the next two years working with so many amazing staff members and prestigious partners”.


Heather Hall of Ipstones achieved 7 A’s and 3 B’s said:
“I have been very nervous and I am still coming to terms with my brilliant results. The JCB Academy has given me the discipline I needed to get the best out of me and because of the staff I am now going on to study Law, Accounting, Business & Maths at Stoke on Trent Sixth Form.”


Ollie Fogg of Repton, Derbyshire said:
“The teaching’s a lot more hands on and the teachers address you as adults instead of children. We do working hours but the upside is that we don’t get any homework instead and we don’t work in notebooks or workbooks we work on computers and laptops”


George Mooney who achieved 11 A* – C said:
“I am over the moon with 6 A’s and 11 grades C and above. To achieve an A in both Business and Engineering which are subjects I had never done before is a credit to the staff at The JCB Academy. I am so grateful for the opportunities the Academy presents with partnerships with Network Rail, JCB and Harper Adams to name a few and look forward to meeting many more next year at The JCB Academy.”
