ACE Tiverton is a new 11-16 special school. We opened in September 2019 with 35 students across Years 7-11. This year we have expanded to 85 students and we expect to be full in September 2023 with up to 100 students. We are a Free School Academy with a designation focused on education and supporting students with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition and related Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.
All of our students have an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) and are supported in their tutor and teaching groups by teachers and teaching assistants. We aim to keep our groups small with no more than 10 students, allowing us to deliver the personalised, differentiated learning that enables our students to succeed.
Our school is a welcoming, inclusive and safe learning environment in which vulnerable students are valued, cherished and nurtured. Our priority is engagement and strong relationships. Our students are all bright, humorous and interesting young people with their own backgrounds, stories and contexts. Many have been out of full-time education for significant periods before coming to us. They thrive in an environment built on mutual respect, genuine interest and transparency. ‘Unconditional positive regard’ is our mantra and we firmly believe that every day is a new start.
Our talented, experienced team of staff take pride in working relentlessly to ensure that every individual leaves us as a confident young adult who is well prepared for their life after Year 11, whether they go into employment or take up further education opportunities. At times, such as when meeting new staff for the first time, out students can be challenging and seek to test out boundaries and expectations. If you are motivated to create excellent educational experiences, have inspirational interactions and rewarding relationships with students who deserve amazing adults who care, are curious and driven by a desire to enable them to be the very best they can be, then we are the school family for you.
