Yesterday (16th September), we were lucky enough to have a visit via video from Grace Academy. They explained how they were going to be showcasing their school to our pupils during the current national situation.
They will not be holding an "Open Evening" as would have been done previously, however, all parents can phone up the school and book a tour by phoning the school reception.
The Grace Academy website (link here) will have a range of frequently asked questions and videos that will be updated. At the top of their website, there is a link saying "JOIN US!". By clicking on this link, you can access this information.
The deadline for appling for secondary school places is 31st October 2020 - all parents need to apply for a school place at your chosen secondary school. Any questions, just send me a message on Dojo.
