Half term Activities




Free Easter Creative Takeover at Walsall Arena


Grace Academy recently hosted a school-wide poetry competition in collaboration with Reach for a Star. The students were selected as the winners and created exceptional poems cantered around the theme ‘I am awesome’.
Their poems were showcased at a community Art exhibition at Darlaston Library, allowing the community to admire their work. Additionally, the students had the chance to recite their poems to the attendees of the exhibition, including the mayor.
Overall, the exhibition was a remarkable event and provided a valuable experience for our competition winners. Well-done everyone!


Coby is in year 7, has been an amazing support to one of his fellow students who has recently joined Grace Academy. Coby has gone above and beyond to help and support the new student being kind and encouraging to the student to help him settle into academy life. To celebrate this, Coby has been rewarded with a random act of kindness. Well done, Coby!


At Grace academy we have a student led Attendance Committee. These students meet at least once every half term to discuss attendance-based topics and ensure that the student voice is heard here at Grace.

The Attendance Ambassadors have welcomed staff from other Tove academies to share the work that they do. This year so far this has included, writing, and presenting assemblies, designing their own logo, writing their own attendance quotes to share with students and had their very own podcast! In the next few weeks, they will be commencing peer mentoring with students who may have a barrier to their attendance.

Their role in supporting our students is invaluable!


Our Attendance Ambassadors have come up with their own quotes about good attendance and why it is so important for students.


Here you will find some useful tips on how to ensure your child arrives to school on time
