Our Lady of Grace is committed to creating an ethos where high achievement for all is expected, valued and celebrated.
We recognise the wide range of abilities that our children have. More able children are children who are performing above the level of their peers.
Our Lady of Grace is a member of the National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE).
