Pupil Experience & Personal Development at JCA

At JCA, we know that the quality of education open doors, increases confidence and therefore we place high importance on delivering an ambitious and academic curriculum to all of our children so that every individual strives to be the best they can be everyday. Of equal importance, is the necessity for children to build cultural capital and develop into well-rounded individuals who contribute positively to society. The pupil experience curriculum at JCA permeates through the academy and provides students with a plethora of experiences that sit besides, intertwine with, and compliment the academic curriculum.

Personal Development is central to everything we do at JCA & is something that permeates our ethos. Find out about our comprehensive support below:
