Matt’s Minute: The Academy Grimsby goes live!

I know the summer holidays have only just started, but September will come around sooner than you think.

We know that starting Year 10 or 11 can be daunting. If you’re considering changing schools it can be scary, so you want to be as prepared as possible. This is certainly made harder when you’re not able to look around your new school due to social distancing rules.

But don’t worry, at The Academy Grimsby, we’ve got you covered!

If you’re not able to attend our in-person social distanced tours (contact [email protected] for more information on these), we’ve got the answer for you: The Academy Grimsby’s Instagram Live tour.


I’ll be touring viewers around The Academy Grimsby’s first-class facilities, workshops, studios, health & care classroom and creative, digital and games space. You will be able to see where our learners work, eat and spend their break times, as if you were here in person.

If you have any questions, you can submit them via Instagram. Either Direct Message @academy_grimsby or comment with your question below our most recent post. Remember, there are no stupid questions!

I’ll answer all of your questions – and more – during the live tour.


5pm – 5:45pm

Thursday 30th July


You can watch our Instagram Live tour simply by following @academy_grimsby. You’ll get a notification to tell you when the live tour has started.

So, whether you’re moving into Year 10 or 11 and thinking about your next step, a parent, a carer or even if you just fancy a peek inside The Academy Grimsby to find out more about our vocational pathways and GCSE tuition, tune in next Thursday!

See you there.
