Post 16

Grace Academy Post 16 is a highly supportive and successful learning environment. A range of vocational and academic courses are offered.

The personal development of our Post 16 students is extremely important at Grace Academy, a wide range of experiences are available for all students to participate in.


Careers advice and education is provided by specialist staff and work related learning is embedded within different subjects at various stages of a student’s education.


Although classroom based learning forms the largest part of a student’s education at Grace Academy many opportunities are provided beyond the formal curriculum which influence and shape the aspirations and achievements of our students. All our students are given the opportunity to engage in a range of activities and experiences which are planned to align with our vision statement and build cultural capital. Most of these experiences are provided without cost to the families of the students.
