Welcome to JCSC
To ensure your transition to JCSC in September 2023 goes as smoothly as possible, we’ll be arranging some opportunities for us to get to know each other and for you to explore your new surroundings.

New build, new facilities
The Coquet Partnership will move to a primary and secondary education model from September 2024. Students joining James Calvert Spence College in Year 5 in September 2023 will remain in the all-through system and will not be affected by these changes. All students will benefit from the planned new build with extensive new facilities, the current plans for the build can be viewed online on the planners website and include:
A floodlit 3G full-size football pitch
A Multi Use Games Areas (MUGA)
A series of football and rugby pitches
The move to a primary-secondary model will require school buildings to be renovated, enhanced or replaced meaning that works will be undertaken on school premises for a period of time. At James Calvert Spence College, we will ensure that students’ opportunities are not restricted because of this and they will still get to enjoy a full and balanced curriculum, making the most of the fantastic facilities we have.
