  • Adrian, Marvellous facts and testimonial lists. From a distance, not knowing Tonie above I would just like to say the following. I am sure that every student who is focussed and serious about their studies will progress and make parents and family very proud. But what I understand very plainly from my own son who spent nearly all his life in an ACE school (The early days of the schools that Adrian still runs) is that the technique, art and skill of working hard, systematically, persistently, effectively and efficiently handling workloads is very much due to the incredible principles and practices that ACE instills into its students. My son Neil is a grafter, and an efficient one at that. It takes students from being classy producers into being world class producers. I have never met Jonathan or Rashid but I am sure they are young people of integrity whose intellectual ability to learn and progress was heightened by their marinading in ACE's principles. It is not only the quality of the train that makes for speed and power, but the rails upon which it rides. Well done Jonathan and Rashid! Well done ACE!Not forgetting to say, well done Adrian and your staff!

  • Adrian I think your update for Jonathan and Rashid is not correct. They were not asked what school they went to or what was covered. The only IT course they did was CLAIT which has nothing to do with the course they are on. In fact it was me and Rashid's grandparents that told them when they enrolled what type of school they went to. He and Rashid were moved to level 3 through their own hard work and determination so the credit is all theirs. Yes being at Phoenix gave them a good head start but in the end they were determined to progress and decided to leave and go to college. In fact it was Gena Areola who was most supportive of this decision unlike some other members of the Phoenix staff.

  • Phoenix Academy ‘Where have all the students gone?’ (The original was prepared in 2012 updated 2013) U[
  • Martin Luther University of Wurttemberg "I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labour in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth". Martin Luther, 1483 to 1546 Württemberg Eisenach, Germany
  • Phoenix Academy 2010 student currently studying at Kingston University " No I am not finding University a pressure. The only thing I have to remember is to spell using English spelling and not American, but of course I can do both. Oh, and the other thing is, I really didn't appreciate being pushed at school by the teachers to finish my PACEs, but now I’m at University I understand and appreciate what you all did. Thank You." Neisha Padmore
  • A 2011 general certificate student who left and went on to college “ what is funny is how the students don’t seem to be able to complete work on time. I have just handed in one of my first essays, the lecturer said 1,000 words, I was about 400 over so I went to him and asked how critical is the word count?” “Oh” he replied, “I only ask for 1,000 as most of the students cannot get anywhere near that number, I am happy with anything up to 2000"
  • Phoenix Academy Student 2011 "I wish the accounts course I did in Phoenix Academy had been as easy as the accounts course I am now doing as part of my University course" Jamaal Rowe, studying at Canterbury University
  • An ACE student who studied at Liverpool Hope University " I am studying a Degree in English and what surprised me was that I was the only person who knew how to breakdown an English sentence into its grammatical parts. Running my own mini tutorials in my university accommodation for my university friends they all asked me 'how on earth do you know how to do this?’ I said 'I went to an ACE school and I learnt this kind of English when I was 13 years old. I could not believe that no one else could do this" ACE student, Emma Crago, studied at Liverpool Hope Univeristy Emma Obtained a First in 2013
  • A PHOENIX ACADEMY STUDENT “When you have been to a school using the ACE system a fundamental element that you learn is how to manage your study time and how to complete work within a given period. I am finding that my work gets completed whereas lots of other students seem to have problems completing work and bringing it in on time. We all have the same amount of time, and I think some of them are possibly brighter than me, but what they lack is the discipline that has been put into me over the years to complete the work on time.”
  • Conversation with one of our students “A friend asked me if I could help her with her GCSE maths as she had to take an exam. I was very surprised when I looked at her work, I helped her and showed her how to work some things out. I then asked if I could take a copy of the work home. She agreed and explained that it was an old practice paper used for GSCE exams. I showed it to my younger sister, who was 13 at the time, and I asked her if she could do this math? She said, ‘ yes of course, I am doing this work now.’' The 13 year old student was on PACE 1083. The ICCE General Certificate begins at PACE 1085.
