The Dean Trust’s vision is to provide good schools for all of the communities that they serve. This is what parents, quite rightly, expect. Our governors, staff and pupils feel part of a wider school family and community that has a common purpose. We always place children at the heart of our planning and have developed a culture of excellence across the organisation and provide fantastic opportunities to develop pupils of all ages. As important, is the aim to make every member of the school community employable in the future through a variety of routes including university, training or apprenticeships.
All of our work is founded on a traditional, ‘no nonsense’ approach towards education, with respect at the heart of our work. At The Dean Trust pupils and students enjoy coming to school, as they are positively challenged and feel like they are contributing to society. As such, they have good attendance and ever improving progress and attainment. To achieve this we strive to employ the best possible staff who also believe that every pupil can do their best given a chance and encouragement. As a Trust, we are not insular and look to the best in industry and commerce to learn from and support our journey. Our key partners and sponsors significantly add value to our work.
