News & Events

In May 2018 we had our most recent Ofsted inspection.

They found the school to be Outstanding in the 'Personal development, Behaviour and Welfare' category and Good in the other four categories.

Instead of the usual lunch this Monday we had a Christmas Meal in school that 

was prepared by Lynn and Sara.


During the year a variety of external specialists come into PACE to work with the students. This Curriculum Enrichment takes a variety of forms. Last year one of these was called 'Picture This project' run by Sharon Corbett. This was a project that included creative workshops looking at aspiration, inspiration and motivation. Recently a book has been published that includes a multitude of sayings and thoughts, some of which have been provided by Students from PACE.


Students and Staff dressed up for Halloween as well as taking part in some entertaining games.


PACE Education expands into Bilston, West Midlands

In addition to PACE Education’s first centre in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, a second centre opened in November 2013 a few miles away in Bilston, West Midlands.

The new centre operates from a converted magistrates’ court, which is steeped in history. The centre has been completely renovated and now provides a modern, safe and comfortable space in which to learn.

The Bilston centre aims to continue where the Newcastle-Under-Lyme school has started, helping young people to re-engage with their education while being taught in small groups in a focused and friendly setting.
