 If you missed our Open Events and you would like the opportunity to visit The Grange Academy, please contact, and we will be pleased to organise a tour for you.

“The Grange is an academy of high standards. That means that we offer the best in terms of a rigorous curriculum, which offers stretch and challenge to all pupils from their first day. This is dovetailed with a supportive offering which encompasses first class teaching in the classroom together with a network of measures to enable all students to reach their potential. Our holistic and personalised approach ensures that all students can succeed in developing their academic and character skills and traits. To ensure this we insist that every student joining the school has a 1:1 interview with a senior leader. This is followed by a baseline skills assessment to ensure that classes, subject choices and study groups are the right fit from the start.  For our admissions policy for 2023/24 please scroll to the end of this page. 

Every student will be linked to a peer buddy and within days of joining will have a trusted adult. Parental communication regarding the progress of your child is ongoing and feedback is consistently provided from day one. You will be invited to a welcome event within days of your child starting at the school, regular reports will communicate academic progress and pastoral links with the Form Tutor and Head of Year are maintained daily.

We are not selective and do not hold any admissions tests.

This allows our open mornings and taster days to be open to all students from our local primaries and gives them a real insight into the exciting enrichment and curricular activities available.”
