Vine Schools Trust

The Vine is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) set up by the Diocese of Chelmsford. It has been my privilege to serve the Vine as Chief Executive since May 2016. We are an active group of academies located throughout the Diocese of Chelmsford.


Our vision is to serve our local communities by providing excellent education and develop Christian character. We are in the early stages of our development and have recently welcomed two new academies to our Trust.  We anticipate welcoming many more in the months and years ahead.


The most important part of what we do is help facilitate improvement in our academies such that the children have the very best possible experience as they grow into mature and confident learners with a strong sense of morality and values.

It is our aim to help our schools deliver, within a Christian context, the best educational, spiritual, physical, social and emotional outcomes for children and their families. This is achieved through a range of partnerships, including; schools, each local community, churches and our Multi-Academy Trust.


We believe each partner has much to offer. We want our pupils and staff to achieve their full potential. We also welcome other schools from beyond the family of Church of England schools.
