Welcome from our Principal

Our Vision

Developing well educated, considerate and caring citizens, with a strong sense of values, who will succeed in and contribute to modern society.

I extend to you a warm welcome to our Academy website and hope that you will make the time to come and visit us in person at one of our Open Evenings or Parents’ events. Grace Academy Coventry is a community school in the truest sense of the word, taking our students from the surrounding community and striving to enable all our community members to achieve a bright future for themselves academically, physically, spiritually and personally.

Students at Grace Academy deserve the most extraordinary experience, and we are committed to providing them with a curriculum that empowers them to aspire to and achieve success, that makes the most of their strengths and talents. Every student at the Academy is an individual and it is our responsibility and privilege to support them in developing their character, knowledge and skills. Our ethos, based on sound Christian values, lies at the heart of this and is embedded in all aspects of Academy life and is integral to promoting a lifelong love of learning in our students. We want our students to leave us with a strong sense of themselves as future leaders in the community, ready to make a difference and achieve both personal and academic excellence.

Last year every member of our Y13 leavers gained a place at their first choice University. The Academy continues to make further progress and my main aim as the new Principal is to help drive academic standards even further making Grace Academy the obvious first choice for any parent looking for their child’s secondary school.

Our facilities and resources are truly fantastic, providing a stimulating learning environment that encourages every student to progress and flourish as a learner. In addition to our targeted curriculum we offer a wide range of extracurricular activities, including opportunities in Sport and from the Arts. We have a thriving cadet force and a wide range of events run by our Ethos team to enhance and develop students’ personal, spiritual and health education. Our business team run events with business partners to offer students the opportunity for ‘real world’ learning that compliments their regular careers sessions as part of a long term plan for their journey to employability.

I am excited about the next steps on our journey and invite you to join us as our young people progress towards becoming truly successful global citizens with confidence in their own skills and passion for the changes they can bring to the future of the communities they go on to serve.

Mrs. A Monga, Principal
