The Vines Academy Trust Careers Site Eteach (53360)


The Vines Academy Trust is a local group of church schools who have come together through shared values and ethos and a shared ambition to maintain and improve our record of good provision and outcomes. The founder schools in our Trust will be Houghton on the Hill CE Primary, All Saints CE Primary, Wigston, Richard Hill CE Primary School and Hope Hamilton CE Primary School.  The Vines aims to ensure an outstanding education for all its children, and to promote the Christian ethos and distinctiveness of its schools.  We believe in the importance of the church school at the heart of the local community, with strong links to the parish church. The Vines will work closely with its existing partnerships, including Oadby Learning Partnership, STEP Teaching School Alliance and the Leicester Diocesan Board of Education, sharing resources and common values. We anticipate over time that our trust will grow to include other likeminded schools, including community schools as well as church schools.
