Welcome from Trust Leader - Cheryl Weyman


The Academies for Character and Excellence is a charitable trust with a mission of Achieving Excellence through Cultivating Character, Sharing Talents and Pursuing Innovation.  Our Trust is an exciting and diverse mix of Church of England and Community Schools within Torbay, Devon and Somerset. We are growing a family of schools that prioritises working together in collaborative partnerships which are mutually supportive and share great practice. We truly value  the distinctive character of our schools and believe they should be rooted in the communities which they serve.  


Our commitment to Character Education is at the heart of our work across the Trust. We are uncompromising in our belief that every child fulfils their academic potential whilst also flourishing in and at life.  Relationships are central to the way we work together  and I am proud to work with colleagues who are passionate about making a positive difference to our children and families. Simply, we are uncompromising in our desire to grow an exceptional Trust. It is a privilege to the lead the ACE Trust which puts its learners at the heart of all we do.
