What skills and experience we're looking for

So, what are we looking for?

Firstly, we wish to appoint positive people who want to make a difference. Being a leader within our Trust means understanding the importance of the softer skills of leadership such as the ability to communicate well, collaborate and influence a range of internal and external stakeholders. Our leaders are achievement-focused, with a strong belief in collaboration. You will be passionate and highly driven and will have the opportunity to play a significant role in the next exciting phase of the Trust’s development.

We wish to appoint people who understand and believe in our guiding principles and values. If successful, you will be joining our Trust at an integral time of growth and your involvement with these key projects will bring its own personal rewards

What the school offers its staff

Who are we?

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 we are proud to work with colleagues who are passionate about making a positive difference to our children and families.

Our ACE Culture

Our ACE culture is defined by four guiding principles:

  • Our values are valued
  • Our staff are our most important resource
  • Everything we do is ultimately about the children
  • Simply what we want is to be the best we can be

Our Commitment to You Community ACE is a community of learners dedicated to achieving our common mission. You are our most valued asset.

We will give you dedicated time to have your own talents developed through working with a wider team of professionals and experts.


ACE works in collaborative partnerships to achieve the extraordinary. You are a vital part of our amazing team.

We will provide a strong supportive network of teams to help you progress and inspire you to go beyond whatever you could do on your own.


ACE recognises that each individual has the right to be appreciated for the added value they bring to the Trust.

We will give you the right opportunities to grow and flourish in all aspects of your wellbeing, no matter what role you have in the organisation.

Uncompromising Excellence

ACE is about excellence in all that we do. We can’t do it for you but we can help you do it for yourself.

You will have access to membership of Trust-wide groups who ask the same question:

What if…? Research and development is part of our core offer to you.


We do what we say we will do. If the gloves don’t fit then we don’t wear them. Our mission and values are both the light that guides us and the standards against which we measure our successes.

We will make a commitment that as a valued member of staff we will not stand in front of or behind you; instead, we will stand side by side looking ahead at what opportunities are yet to come.

Your Contribution to the Trust Community

ACE is about being part of a community of learners dedicated to providing the very best for everybody.

You use your own skills, knowledge and experience to help others thrive. Your willingness to go the extra mile for others is obvious and apparent in all you do.


ACE is a collaborative Trust where sharing talents results in innovation and improvement which ensures we can all be great together.

You will share your time, enthusiasm, knowledge and resources with others. You recognise that your achievements are always reliant on others, and you will celebrate successes together.


ACE is about equality, equity and inclusivity for all. Your importance to the Trust is never underestimated.

You know that equity is understanding and valuing each other as individuals, no matter what the differences are. You demonstrate this through treating everyone with dignity, respect and care.

Uncompromising Excellence

ACE is about excellence, but for us, this is a habit not a destination.

You have high standards, expectations and a drive to be the best you can be. Today’s outcomes will be brilliant but tomorrow’s even better.


ACE is about an unrelenting desire to work towards achieving our mission. We don’t do something if it’s not the right thing to do. We are the advocates for our children and we never forget that.

You do the right things and you do them right. Your decisions and actions are aligned to our vision and values and that’s what guides you.

How will we Develop your Talent?

We believe that everyone has a right to have their own talents recognised and developed. It is far more than just an organisational offer as it aligns us with our values of equity and uncompromising excellence.

Our Talent Management identification programme allows us to recognise talent from an early stage. We understand that not everyone wants to follow traditional hierarchical routes for promotion, and as a result we offer a wide variety of professional development opportunities that allow individuals to progress in areas which they find their talents and passions are best suited to.

We do this in a number of ways including:

  • Provision of a bespoke coaching programme
  • A Talent Management central team
  • Clear routes of progression across the Trust
  • Collaborative working opportunities
  • Network of Teams
  • In-house Leadership training and development
  • Opportunities to impact across the Trust
  • Individual personal learning plans
