School Description

The Jam Academy comprises both the specialist performing and production arts sixth form, and the Jam Creative School, which provides education for pupils aged 10 to 16. The Jam Academy started in September 2012 and Jam Creative School in September 2015. The school was registered by the Department for Education in October 2016. This is its Inspection report: The Jam Academy, 28–30 November 2017 Page 9 of 12 first standard inspection. The Jam Theatre Company provides after-school and holiday workshops and training on the school site. It is not part of the school and so did not form part of this inspection. The proprietors, Jo Noel-Hartley and Mark Hartley, are also the school leaders and the only full-time members of staff. There is no governing body. The school is registered as an independent coeducational school for boys and girls aged 10 to 18. There are currently 20 pupils on roll, aged from 12 upwards. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is average. The proportion of pupils with education, health and care plans is well below the national average. There are no disadvantaged pupils at the school. The school makes use of specialist facilities at a local school, Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School, along with local authority sports provision. There is also a school allotment situated within walking distance of the main site. The school uses no alternative provision.
