ACE Summer 2021 Exam Results

The entire ACE team are delighted with the strong set of results achieved by all ACE and Alternative Provision students in what was another difficult and challenging academic year.

All students achieved the results they needed for their ‘next steps’ transition plans and it was great to see so many of you come, collect your results and share your success with us.

The ACE Transition and Careers teams remains available to support you until at least the end of this academic term so please do keep in touch and if you need any support or guidance as you move on to college and training, please do get in touch.

Duke of Edinburg Award Scheme at ACE

DoE goes from strength to strength and in this final summer half term we have a number of day visits, walk and practice expeditions as well as a final overnight expedition to look forward too.  Students have been busy working on the award all year and a large part of this is voluntary work around ACE, with partners (especially ZSL Whipsnade) and in the local community.
