The ACE site is now closed to all students fr half term and will reopen on Monday 1st June for children of key workers and other identified student groups only.

Following Gov’t advice, ACE is making plans to offer some face to face education for Yr 10 and 11 students onsite, towards the end of June.  Obviously a lot of planning needs to take place first to ensure that this can happen safely and we will contact parents nearer the time to see if they wish to take up this offer.

For parents that have been offered ongoing education places but have not so far taken up this offer, if you would now like to do so then please mention during your next welfare phone call or call ACE and leave a message and we will return the call and arrange provision.

For all ACE students, we will continue to make weekly welfare calls and we will continue to keep you updated via this website, the ACE Facebook page and direct by text.  We thank you for your understanding during this difficult and challenging time and on behalf of the ACE team, we wish your family good health.

Welcome to the website for the Avenue Centre for Education. At ACE we focus on helping students recognise and overcome their personal barriers to successful learning and through a targeted curriculum based on core academic, social, Life and Work Skills, ensure that all students are more able to achieve and realise their potential both as learners and as individuals.

ACE had a full Ofsted Inspection on the 4th and 5th of July 2017. We are delighted that the Ofsted judgments were ‘Good’ in all categories and that the Ofsted report was such a positive document recognising all the hard work and successes of ACE.

We believe that through the ACE personalised approach, students will learn more, feel happier and become more self confident and positive in their attitudes, values and personal choices. At ACE we seek to prepare and equip students for a return to mainstream education or for successful transition onto ongoing education, training or employment.  Every student has their own strengths, interests and aspirations and so their own plausible route into adulthood.

One of our year 11 students came in today to finish up his BTEC qualification in Food. He completed his level one and two practicals.
He managed to cook four different items at the same time which is a remarkable achievement.

Well done TA!
