About JCSC

It’s my great pleasure to welcome you to James Calvert Spence College, a school that welcome students from year 5 through to Sixth Form.
As a parent, one of the most important decisions you will have to make is to choose the correct school for your child. It needs to be the right environment for them staffed with caring professionals who all have the same positive attitude towards what makes a school exceptional.
You will find this, and more, at James Calvert Spence College.

We have high aspirations for all of our students – we expect them to show determination and a desire to achieve highly, and in return we offer unwavering support throughout their years with us. In Key Stage 4 and the sixth form, we offer a wide range of GCSE, A-Level and vocational courses to make sure that there is a relevant pathway into Higher Education, further training or employment for everyone.

Our outcomes have shown significant improvement over recent years and in 2016 96% of our Year 13 students earned a place at University or progressed to their choice of education, training or employment.

The governors and staff of the college are committed to its continuing development and improvement, to ensure that it provides education of the highest quality for all students. We are proud to serve the young people of Amble and the surrounding area and we understand how important it is for us to be at the heart of our community.
