About Grace Academy
Welcome to Grace Academy, 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 academies situated in Darlaston, Coventry and Solihull, the Grace Family is built on an ethos, embodied in our core values of: Grace, Integrity, Excellence, Respect and Potential.
Sponsored by the Grace Foundation, a charity founded by the entrepreneur and philanthropist Lord Edmiston, our mantra of ‘developing tomorrow’s leaders’ is based on the belief that every young person should achieve their personal best and so enable them to contribute to the local, national and international community.
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.
Our business partnership programme ranges from visits and work placements with local employers, to a special event where students interact with local and national business.
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.
