The purpose of our Trust is to create a mutually supportive family of academies, holding within it both schools that choose to become converter academies and those seeking a sponsored solution.
We were established in October 2013 as an independent not for profit company set up by the Chelmsford Diocesan Board of Education.
To fulfil our vision we believe in providing the very best education for all of our pupils. Therefore, our academies will be outward facing, work to develop Christian Character and provide the very best education.
The Vine is committed to the development of effective collaboration with and between academies and schools. The Vine welcomes already successful schools and looks forward to sharing in the best practice you bring with you
We will support you in maintaining any current partnerships and promote the development of new networks. We believe that schools, beyond the family of Church of England schools, will be attracted to our values; everyone is welcome to join our family.
‘I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit’
