Grace Academy is a charitable organisation that has successfully opened three 11-19 Academies in the West Midlands. The vision of Grace Academy is to develop well-educated, considerate and caring citizens with a strong sense of values, who will succeed in and contribute to modern society. At the heart of all we do is a drive to provide an outstanding education for students which develops the whole person through our Christian ethos.
It is our Christian ethos that makes Grace Academy unique, shaping who we are as an organisation, and providing a clear road map for us all through our five shared values of grace, respect, integrity, potential and excellence. Our aim is for these shared values to be outworked through our Academy culture, embedded in our enhanced curriculum, role modelled by our staff and explored and demonstrated by all of our students. We believe this approach will help deliver an outstanding education for our students over the long term.

They will be organised, creative, flexible and professional, able to support the delivery of a range of activities from intervention small groups to Academy wide programmes.
