Alternative Schooling

ACE offers something different to students who find traditional classroom based learning difficult. This could be due to a number of factors which impact on their learning; anything from not being able to conform and follow the rules in school which results in disengagement to multiple issues in their lives which impact on their ability to engage in schooling.

Alternative schooling at ACE offers flexibility for both schools and students, while delivering BTEC and TLM level 1 / 2 qualifications. Students attending this provision will not only have the opportunity to undertake GCSE equivalent qualifications and functional skills, but also be invited to participate in our Personal Social Development (PSD) and Employability programmes, as well as some enrichment activities.

Years 9, 10 and 11 students can access this service for 1 to 4 days a week, depending on the needs of the student and school. We are very careful to ensure the mix of student groups supports both learning and development of the students into responsible young adults.
