About Grace Academy Coventry

Grace Academy is a welcoming and caring community where our core values of Limitless Potential, Intentional Excellence, Mutual Respect, Genuine Integrity and Amazing Grace based on Christian values, run through all we do. Our Values are central to our ethos, day-to-day curriculum, extra-curricular activities and pastoral structures. We aim to be aspirational and proud of who we are. We believe that all our students should be happy and safe and have the Limitless Potential to succeed.

We have amazing students here at Grace who deserve the best possible life chances. We encourage students to be praised and recognised whilst at the same time being challenged to meet our expectations.

At the centre of all we do is the focus of what is best for our students; we not only focus on the academic excellence of students but also work with students on supporting them to be the best human beings they can be. My team and I pride ourselves on making decisions from a position of integrity. As a parent myself, I strongly believe that if it is not good enough for my children, then it is not good enough for Grace students. This is even more important in the current climate, as we put student wellbeing and aspirations at the heart of what we do. We believe it is important for all students leaving Grace Academy to have the self-belief and qualifications they need in order to follow the path they have chosen; that students do not limit themselves and that staff and parents work together to support them in raising their expectations and aspirations.

We value our staff and pride ourselves on our caring ethos with a strong and genuine focus on staff wellbeing. We are committed to developing our staff at all stages of their career, both internally and externally.

We have a friendly, innovative and exciting community in which to work and offer a variety of attractive benefits, such as an onsite gym and use of the sporting facilities, free eye care vouchers, refreshments available throughout the day, free lunches when on duty and the opportunity to be a part of the Staff Wellbeing and Workload Committees.

Grace Academy joined the TOVE Learning Trust in April 2019. We are a close knit family of schools that have a shared vision and purpose: to deliver outstanding educational experiences that lead to inspiring outcomes. Each academy has a strong individual identity and tailors their educational provision to serve their local community. Academies within the Trust collaborate to share expertise and maximise opportunities and experiences for our staff and students
