Welcome to Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre

Dear Parents, Carers and friends

Welcome to the website of Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre or HAJC6. I am immensely proud to be the new principal of this fantastic academy. Following the exceptional work undertaken over the last couple of years to bring together John Cleveland College and Mount Grace into one campus, we are now poised to build upon the great successes of the two founder schools.

Our school is built upon its core values of:

  • Trust
  • Co-operation
  •  Fairness
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Equality

These essential traits permeate everything we do and aspire to be. Our mission is to provide life affirming and life changing experiences for all our students providing them with first class opportunities to take a full and active part in 21st Century life. Our students develop essential leadership and life skills alongside a wide-ranging curriculum, within our extensive campus that offers incredible facilities. Our oldest students go on to fulfil their dreams in medicine, engineering, health care, education and hundreds of other successful pathways.

Whilst this website will only give you a flavour of what Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre can offer, I urge you to come and have a look for yourself, especially if you were once a part of one the founder schools.

I welcome you to HAJC6 and look forward to meeting you in person.


Richard Cahill
