Welcome to King James I Academy
We offer a range of qualifications and over 20 subjects to choose from. From A Levels to BTECs there is something for every student. Some qualifications are exam based where as others entail coursework assignments or are entirely founded on coursework. This allows students to make a better choices about what they wish to study, based on their strengths and weaknesses.
All subjects have lower than the average class sizes, making teaching highly focused on the individual needs of each student. Due to this there is excellent progress tracking from tutors and teachers, some of which involves regular reports on the development of students. As a result, individuals often achieve higher than predicted results.
Our Sixth Form team and all teaching staff provide excellent support with studies, higher education and careers advice.
We have a common room, library, café and good ICT facilities available to the students
Some subjects are available for study in collaboration with St Johns RC Comprehensive due to flexibility in timetables. Students from St Johns can access courses in Drama and Performing Arts at King James.
