The aims of the trust


Our Aims

We aim to help our academies deliver, within a Christian context, the best educational, spiritual, physical, social and emotional outcomes for pupils and their families. This is achieved through a range of partnerships including academies, local communities, local Churches and the Vine. We believe each partner has much to offer and we want our pupils and staff to achieve their full potential.

Within a positive and supportive Christian ethos, the Vine is committed to enriching the lives of its pupils, maximising the educational experiences and attainment levels of all of its pupils, developing creative and independent learners and providing them with transferable skills that can be applied throughout their life.

The Vine was established to improve the life chances of every pupil in its academies within a Christian context. By playing a direct role in enabling the academies to maximise the rate of learning. The Vine will both support and challenge its academies to help assure high academic outcomes for its pupils.

Regular monitoring and evaluation of the academies within the Vine will enable best practice to be shared and rapid action taken to address any identified underperformance. The aim of the Vine is for all academies to be at least good and/or on the journey towards outstanding within 2 years of joining.  

‘I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit;’
