Our Difference

The Academy for Character and Excellence promotes Character Education – a values-led approach to education. This was the purpose of the formation of this Trust - to provide member schools with the opportunity to continue to develop approaches that will result in excellence in Character Education.


We are a MAT with a mixture of Church and community schools and also Pre-Schools and we pride ourselves with the links we have developed within our local communities.


Our vision is for a Trust that results in
personal growth for all – this includes all stakeholders. We believe that this personal growth should have wellbeing at its heart giving everyone the potential for all to “flourish, achieving a sense of purpose, leading a full life and thriving.”


We believe in ensuring that our schools preserve their unique identities and traditions, in order to serve their different contexts and communities.


We are committed to ensuring that Character Education, through the vehicle of deeply embedded values, is at the heart of our work across our trust.
