About​ Transforming Futures Trust

Transforming Futures Trust works with children for whom mainstream education is not right: young people with behavioural challenges; children with mental health concerns; students who find the traditional setting of a school intimidating. It is not an exaggeration to say that we change these young people’s lives.  Our extraordinary staff have the ability to connect with these children and apply the principles of trauma-informed care to enable them to reach their potential.

Transforming Futures Trust’s core aim is to create ‘positive futures for all’. We are building a culture of Trauma-Informed Practice in all our schools which supports the wellbeing and development of all children and young people, Headteachers, School staff, parents/carers and stakeholders and the wider communities they are a part of. We have proven educational practice and strong leadership which has enabled us to develop new provisions across the southwest to meet the needs of children and families which have not been met in existing schools in the area. Since it was established, TFT has developed a highly effective internal capacity to support schools in their work with children and young people, helping them to make the biggest difference to their life chances.

Transforming Futures Trust was formally set up on 1st June 2016 (previously known as ACE Schools Multi Academy Trust with the aim of growing from a single educational provision in Plymouth into a group of schools across Devon and Cornwall.  Our simple aim is to support the development and improvement of education for all pupils within the Trust and beyond through school to school support.

We now have three schools in the Trust:

ACE Schools: Changing lives for the better every day
ACE schools is an alternative provision for children from 4-18 with sites across Plymouth, Cornwall and Devon. Pupils come to us for short stay interventions when other forms of education are no longer able to meet their needs. Our schools use a Trauma-Informed approach to provide a full curriculum experience personalised to the needs of each individual, with a particular focus on core academic study and personal development. Our specialist staff work hard to raise pupils’ aspirations, self-esteem and resilience. We challenge them to aim high for their future after ACE, whether in other schools, further or higher education or the workplace.

Courtlands: We meet the child where they are and give them what they need.
Courtlands Special Academy in Plymouth supports 100 primary aged children who have Moderate Learning Difficulties, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMH), and other complex needs from across Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.  Our passion is meeting the needs of every child, however complex, and seeing them flourish into well-rounded members of the community.

ACE Tiverton: Enjoy Excellent Learning every day
ACE Tiverton is a new specialist secondary school, educating students with ASC and linked social, emotional and mental health needs. Our learning family is built upon strong, trusting relationships, a deep sense of belonging and high aspirations for our students in every area of their lives. We challenge everyone in our school team to embrace learning, take risks and achieve their potential.
