Live Your Best Life: your education your way

Your education, your way! Codie-Louise Wilkinson came to The Academy Grimsby because she wanted to learn real, employable skills in a real life, practical environment. And that’s what she got. 

 “I decided to come to The Academy Grimsby because the pathway options were more practical. There just seemed to be better options available here that would suit me and my style of learning. I decided to take the health and care pathway and really enjoyed it.

“At The Academy Grimsby, it feels like our learning is prioritised. We’re not worried about strict uniform rules and restrictions; we’re trusted and our education is put first. We’re given more freedom, so it feels more like a college environment.

“Smaller classes also mean you get one-to-one support rather than generalised answers to your questions. I liked all of my teachers. By the end of my time at The Academy Grimsby, my teachers felt almost more like parents. If I ever had a problem, I knew I could talk to a teacher. They are all really nice, nurturing and supportive.

“I’m now thinking about becoming a primary school teacher and am going on to Career 6 to study English Literature, Sociology and Psychology.

“If you’re considering coming to The Academy Grimsby, I’d recommend coming and having a look around to see the campus for yourself. My Dad wasn’t sure about me coming here at first, but as soon as he stepped foot inside the building he was convinced. He saw the amazing facilities and knew it was the right place for me. Which it absolutely was.”

We still have places available on our health and care pathway. So get in touch if you’re interested in finding out more information or taking a look around our facilities.
