It’s a busy day today at The JCB Academy with the new intake of year 12 students starting. The new students start the day off with a welcome by the academy principal Jim Wade and director of sixth form, Paul Stanmore.
Students will then be assigned laptops, ID badges and email accounts and get to know each other with a quick game of people bingo. After a break for lunch the students will get to learn about some of the fantastic opportunities available in the sixth form, one of which is this year’s trip to Sri Lanka. Late in the afternoon they meet the student support team and discuss the arrangements for tomorrows visit to Alton Towers.
