Mr Rhys Davies Assistant Headteacher: Preparation for Adulthood

Originally from Swansea, Rhys moved to Exeter to complete a PGCE following a career in professional rugby. Rhys’s first experience in a school came as a TA supporting students with additional learning needs. This was Rhys’ first steps into education and inspired him to train as teacher.

Having completed 5 years in primary education, Rhys made the move to a specialist setting in 2016 where he became part of the leadership team as Head of Middle School and Lead English teacher. Rhys then moved across to ACE Tiverton where he joined the leadership team in 2021 as an Assistant Headteacher responsible for Teaching, Learning and Curriculum.

Rhys completed his NPQML in 2020 and is working alongside SWALLS to complete his Leadership in Special Schools course. He also represents ACE Tiverton as part of the Autism Education Trust developing Good Autism Practice for MATS. Rhys is currently our Designated Teacher and lead for Pupil Premium and National Tutoring Programme.
