Grace Academy is an Academy in Coventry, England. It has an expanding sixth form which is part of the North East Federation.[1] It was formerly Woodway Park School and Community College, and was converted into an Academy on 31 August 2008 using the same buildings, prior to housing the new academy in new buildings on 24 February 2010[2][3]

The academy is operated by Grace Foundation,[4] a registered charity founded by Bob Edmiston, entrepreneur and founder of the evangelical international charity Christian Vision, who is a Governor of Grace Academy. According to its Annual Report and Financial Statements to August 2012, the Coventry school received annual government funding of £5,898,000.

On 20 August 2013 the school was among those named by The Independent newspaper and the British Humanist Association as adopting a policy similar in wording to the repealed anti-gay legislation Section 28.
