Welcome to The Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust, a Multi-Academy Trust of fifteen Primary and one Special School all based in the Epping Forest District.  

Along with our SCITT (School-Centred Initial Teacher Training), Teaching School, Family and Children Support Services and SEMH provisions based in two of our schools, we are a leading educational organisation in Epping Forest. Formed in 2018 from a consortium of schools which had worked together for over 20 years, we are committed to collaborative working to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children and school communities.

Our Trustees

All of our schools are committed to give and receive support, to take risks and innovate. Our improvement hubs will share best practice and develop partnerships.

Their aim is to produce consistent pupil progress and focus on improved standards.

Revd. Lee Batson Chair

Lee has been an ordained priest in the Church of England since 2004, and has served in parishes in Saffron Walden and Chelmsford before moving to lead a group of churches in Epping in 2017. He has previously served as Chair of Governors for a Community Primary School, and currently sits on the governing bodies of two Church of England schools (secondary and primary - both outside the MAT) so he has extensive experience of school governance. He has also set up, and then chaired, a community trust that brought together statutory, community and faith based groups. Lee has been involved in bringing together groups of churches in such a way that celebrates their individual charism and autonomy, whilst allowing the benefits of partnership to be appreciated.  He is a member of the Diocese of Chelmsford's  Board of Education.
