About Us

PACE Education has been making a positive difference to young people’s lives since it was founded in 2005. As well as proving a vital lifeline to those who have been excluded from school and those on the verge of permanent exclusion, we also provide support to those at risk of exclusion. Our school is set up to help pupils who have become disengaged from their education, or young people who have found mainstream school a challenge.  

We have assisted students who are subject to statements of needs, and supported young people who are looked after. Our staff are experienced and equipped to help youngsters working through social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

As well as providing tailored education packages and behaviour management programmes, PACE has established great working links with external agencies concerned with a young person’s welfare, including: parents and carers; schools; local education authorities; SEN monitoring and assessment teams; youth offending services; children and young people’s services; local police; the school nurse and health service; careers advice; alcohol and drug awareness teams; and CAMHS.

PACE Education aims to provide a quality service to all who pass through its doors. For a full list of PACE’s aims, click here.
