Welcome to Orchards 6th Form (ACE)


Limited places still available

Orchards Advance Centre of Education (ACE) is a new innovative approach to post 16 education. We have used the most up-to-date government thinking to create unique and tailored study plans that lead to employment or university opportunities.

Our approach allows students to focus on their dreams and ambitions by allowing them to study a single subject in great depth while ensuring a broad education is provided and no future pathway is closed.

Our work experience programme is one of a kind and cannot be found in other post 16 education providers. Each of our students will spend time out working in industries that match the course they have chosen. Beyond this, careers education forms the backbone of each of the pathways on offer. We are also committed to providing excellent university advice for our students who want to continue onto degree courses.

The exclusive nature of the courses means there will limited places on each course so we do recommend sending applications as early as possible. Our course structure allows for a personalised approach to teaching and ensures our highly trained, industry specialised staff can concentrate on individual student performance and development. This personal aspect of our courses ensures our students are supported and tailored programs are offered.

The courses offered at ACE are all level 3 and require a two year commitment. On completion of the course students will leave with three A-level equivalent qualifications and would have been provided with the skills that would enable them to successfully apply for employment or university.

If you are looking for a more personal approach to post 16 education and you are attracted to work and study programmes please read on.
