We are sponsored by Grace Foundation, a charity established by Lord Edmiston, Chairman of the International Motors Group. He explains his involvement; “as a local businessman I am committed to the success of Grace Academy. My company is based in the West Midlands and while I am involved in charitable work on a worldwide basis, it gives me particular pleasure to put something back in my home area. We have worked with the government to create purpose built academies in an area that has faced challenges over many years.

Grace Academy Darlaston is part of a wider family of Academies sponsored by Grace Foundation that are committed to collaboration and joint working to benefit all of our students. Our commitment is to work together in close local partnerships with the community, local authority, primary schools and other secondary schools in the area.

My whole attitude towards learning and towards education and towards life in general and other people, it completely changed.
