Parents and carers are encouraged to play an active and positive role in their child’s education at PACE. We want to keep you up-to-date and reassured as to their progress every step of the way.

You may have questions about a child’s transition to PACE from other schools, and want information about the kind of education we provide. To make this as easy as possible we have an open policy, meaning you can contact us any time there is something you wish to discuss. No concern is too great or too small.

In order for students to get all they can out of their time at PACE and for you, the parent or carer, to have maximum peace of mind, we have outlined our commitments in a mission statement below. For more information about our aims, click here.

In return, we ask all parents/carers to notify PACE staff if their child will be absent from school at any time. This will help us to monitor student attendance and time-keeping.


Our Mission Statement

"Providing young people with a brighter future"

PACE Education is a specialist education provider, operating at two school sites, in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Staffordshire, and Bilston, West Midlands. Our main objective is to ‘provide young people with a brighter future’ by giving them the chance to learn in an environment that is best suited to their needs and abilities. PACE Education provides education to boys and girls of all abilities and is non-denominational. It offers a wide range of qualifications and awards through a holistic range of quality services.

PACE Education is passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of others, and dedicates itself to building the confidence of the young people in its care. We aim to empower students, enabling them to enjoy positive relationships, achieve their goals and unlock their potential.

Our team seeks to re-engage young people with education. We will endeavour to build trusting relationships, which in turn will help the students to make informed choices and take responsibility for their own actions, while respecting others around them.
