Striving for




Welcome from the CEO

At ACET, we are a values-based trust which regards the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of almost 6,000 children and young people as an absolute privilege. Working with over 800 employees, we strive to build strong partnerships with parents/carers and the 12 local communities in which our academies are located.

As the recently appointed CEO, through strong leadership, it is fundamental to secure a good quality of education in all ACET academies; to ensure our young people develop a life-long love and enthusiasm for learning, making a positive contribution to society. In partnership with colleagues across the ACET family, we will strive to ensure every child and young person has an ambition, leaving statutory education having reached their potential. At ACET, it is our endeavour to make a positive difference to the lives of the children and young people for whom we are responsible for.

I regard staff as a precious resource and place a strong emphasis on people having access to the professional development opportunities required to enable them to excel in their roles. At ACET, we value our staff and appreciate the efforts and contribution each member of the family makes – together, we are stronger.

Welcome to ACET, Chapter 2…a strong trust growing from strength to strength.
