Grays Convent High School is a girls' Roman Catholic secondary school in Grays, Essex, England.

It is a voluntary-aided school which has been awarded Beacon school status and is officially a specialist Language College.

Founded by sisters of La Sainte Union des Sacrés-Coeurs over a century ago, it was firstly held in St Thomas's Church before moving to College Avenue, where it remains today. Parts of the school building itself were used as living quarters for several sisters until 1999.

The school building was damaged by a bomb blast during World War II, but was repaired soon after.
