John Cabot Academy
John Cabot Academy (JCA) is the best known of the CLF Academies. Its history dates back to 1993 when it opened as the 15th City Technology College (CTC) in England and was one of the first specialist schools in the country, focusing upon science and technology. David Carter, now the Executive Principal of the Cabot Learning Federation was appointed Principal of John Cabot CTC in April 2004 and remained in this post until September 2008 when due to the expansion of the federation it became impractical to lead the federation and be responsible for John Cabot on a day to day basis.
The CTC became an Academy on 1 September 2007 at the same time as Bristol Brunel Academy and together, these two Academies started the federation partnership. Adam Williams was appointed to become the new Principal of JCA in 2008 having been David Carter’s Vice Principal. In the spring of 2012, Adam was appointed to be the new Principal at Bath Community Academy and Jon Angell was appointed to become the new Principal of JCA, taking on this role from 25 June 2012.
JCA has an impressive track record of performance. It has been judged “outstanding” twice by OFSTED, in 2007 and 2009, & has GCSE results that consistently place the school in the top 5% of schools in England.
