You may need to create two layouts, one continuous, and one with page breaks
Then use the page breaks layout if you see the record count for the terms won't fit nicely ( which is unfortunately printer dependent )
This could be scripted
> What I'd like to achieve is to be able to have a page break before the academic term sub-summary if not all the grades from that term are able to fit on the space remaining on the page.

I am working on the same problem and I have stumbled onto a piece of the answer. The trick is to get leading AND trailing sub-summaries of the same field on the same layout. This way, you can sort by your given field (leading), summarize or report records below that (body) and and then check the box for 'page break after every 1 occurence' on the trailing sub-summary of the same field. Note, I did not even put a field into this final layout part, but you need the part there to tell the layout where to put the page break. I did put some non-printing text in there to remind me not to delete the apparently empty part.
In your example above, you may wish to try adding a 'Print Order' number field to designate which groups of records get their own page and which should be combined onto the same page. This way, you could add Print Order to the top of your sort list and then control the page breaks via leading and trailing sub-summaries of the Print Order field.
Thanks a lot for this. Still not perfect, but at least it splits the page the way I want most of the time.
