About Grace Academy

About Grace Academy

Welcome to Grace Academy Solihull, where our vision is to develop well educated, considerate and caring citizens with a strong sense of values who will succeed in, and contribute to, ‘modern society’. With sister academies situated in Darlaston and Coventry, the Grace Family is built on an ethos embodied in our core values of: Grace, Integrity, Excellence, Respect and Potential.

At Grace Academy, we believe that excellent teaching and support, world-class facilities and outstanding resources combine to give our students the best possible preparation for their adult life. For those students new to our Academy, numerous transition events and activities enable them to make friends and settle in quickly. Working closely with our primary partners we develop relationships with our new students.

As well as a strong emphasis on academic and examination achievement, an extensive choice of extra-curricular and enrichment activities and clubs give students the chance to explore their creativity, or acquire a qualification that will impress future employers.

An increasing number of students continue their learning journey in our vibrant Sixth Form, which also attracts young people from the wider community. Identified by their smart business dress, students can study exciting A-level subjects, specialised work related courses or a combination of the two. Our aim is to provide students with the tools they need to progress successfully to university, apprenticeships, further training or high quality employment.

Tove Learning Trust

In April 2019 the Grace Family became part of Tove Learning Trust. The trust is committed to ensuring that all students achieve as highly as possible and we work hard to offer stimulating environments that enable every learner to progress and flourish.  We have a small central team and a committed Board of Trustees that are focused on delivering outstanding outcomes. We aim to have academies that are excellent communities of learning where students thrive on success.

Our vision – is simple: to ensure that all students in our academies are provided with inspiring educational experiences that lead to outstanding outcomes. This includes all aspects of school life with students achieving to the very best of their ability.  We want all students to aspire to being participative citizens in our society who contribute positively to it.

Our aim – is to build and embed a culture based on respect for each other, develop resilience to meet new challenges and opportunities and provide encouragement to allow our academies to take responsibility for their actions and their learning.

Our purpose – The Board of Trustees exists to drive the vision of generating a high expectation culture where all staff and students are valued and equipped to meet the challenges associated with high quality teaching and learning. Colleagues have a commitment and energy to ensure that all academies strive to meet our aim of providing inspiring provision leading to outstanding outcomes.

Our values – The board is focused on what’s best for each academy and the students within the trust. We will seek to drive improvements in standards by challenging in a constructive manner, asking probing questions and seeing the strategic picture. We understand our roles and responsibilities and are prepared to consider dynamic and innovative ideas.  We share a passion about adopting an entrepreneurial stance to make the most of opportunities that are outside of academies normal day to day practices.
