This was definitely one of the highlights of my mayoral year. I would like to thank the college for including me in the invitation to their performance, and thank all who took part, including backstage, lighting, sound, the director and anyone I may have not mentioned who was involved in t...

Welcome to John Cleveland College

Mr Craven, Prinicpal

P D Craven, Principal

John Cleveland is a large comprehensive school for students aged 14-19. We work extremely closely with our feeder High Schools in order to build on the success and progress the young people have made prior to transferring to JCC.

I am delighted that in our recent Ofsted Inspection (March 2012) using the new more challenging framework the College was judged to be ‘Good’ for the first time ever. Inspectors said the College “provides a good standard of education for its students” and has “improved strongly since the previous Inspection.”
