Grace Academy opened as an 11 to 18 school in September 2006. It has a non-denominational Christian ethos and subject specialisms in business and enterprise. The academy is accommodated in state of the art new buildings adjacent to the site of its 11 to 16 predecessor school. The academy follows Solihull Local Authority's admission policy; it is non-selective and is heavily oversubscribed. It serves the community of Chelmsley Wood, an area that includes districts of high social and economic disadvantage. The majority of students are White British, although a small number come from minority ethnic heritages. The number of students eligible for free school meals is twice the national average. The proportion of students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is also well above the national figure. The academy has faced significant staffing difficulties and has experienced a large turnover of teachers. In January 2008, the principal was appointed as executive principal for the Grace Academies and the vice principal took up post as principal. In September 2008, 27 teachers joined the academy, including several in key senior and middle leadership roles.
