1 ACE Virtual is the Five Rivers nationwide virtual education platform. We offer education and extra tuition to learners aged 6-18 years. We work closely with schools and local education authorities to offer quick response, flexible, bespoke education packages for children and young people experiencing placement changes, LEA (Local Education Authority) transitions, school changes and wellbeing.

1 ACE (Another Chance Education) is a methodology developed at Five Rivers by our team of outstanding education professionals. The approach develops the whole learner by adopting both a therapeutic and academic approach to ensure they achieve the best possible learning experience and outcomes. We also work closely with their parents/carers, and health and education professionals as part of the learner’s wider education support network.

  • Offers attendance at education meetings to provide support, advocacy and advice.


“Over the past months, the engagement AC had with your lessons was so good – it’s a testament to the relationship you were able to build with AC as we know how much they have struggled with schooling.”
