Admissions Arrangement

As a Pupil Referral Unit, catering for students who have been permanently excluded from mainstream schools, ACE is not available for parents to directly apply to. Referrals are received by ACE from Luton Schools, Luton Borough Council Admissions Service or from the Luton Pupil Placement Panel.

All referrals come to the Hub Allocation Panel who maintain an overview of current capacity within the ACE services and allocate students to the most appropriate educational provision pathway or intervention.

Parents who feel that their child is in danger of permanent exclusion and may benefit from some intervention service from ACE should contact their child’s school to discuss the possibility of a school referral.
