Mission, Aims & Motto

Lord Grey Academy is an inclusive school with a past heritage of specialist status in Languages and Humanities. We no longer hold these statuses (of our own choice as we are now moving to a “quality mark” model), but they continue to be vibrant areas of school life.

We value every student and challenge and support each student to achieve success.

Learning is at the heart of our school. We are a caring and purposeful community where academic work, extra-curricular activities, good behaviour and citizenship are central to our ethos, the Lord Grey Way. Working in partnership with parents and teachers, our students achieve success.

The Lord Grey Way

We expect our students to participate in school activities with pride and commitment. We want them to enjoy their learning and their time at Lord Grey. We encourage our students to actively develop an awareness of the world around them and the part which they, as individuals, can play in shaping the future.

Mission Statement

“Lord Grey Academy is a future-driven, aspirational and inclusive school offering all learners outstanding social and academic opportunities. Our international, national and local community links promote the development of fulfilled and successful young people.
