Welcome to The Dean Trust.

By January 2016 we will have six schools and academies in both the primary and secondary sectors. Our aim is to ensure that all of our schools are at least ‘Good’ with an aspiration for all to be ‘Outstanding’. This is what our parents rightly expect.

The Dean Trust operates in three Local Authorities (Manchester, Trafford and Knowsley) and this provides a rich cultural mix as well as an opportunity to learn from the best in each area.

Supporting our schools and academies is the Ashton on Mersey Teaching School. As a result, our staff remain fully up-to-date with the newest and best methods in teaching for our own children as well as supporting other schools and their staff.

All of our schools and academies are part of their local community and have a real sense of identity. Notwithstanding this we expect the highest possible standards and we always look to ‘level-up’ to our best school. We want communities to be proud of their local Dean Trust school or academy and we in turn are determined to make it the ‘first choice’ for all families.

The Dean Trust has recognised leaders in the field of education as identified by our two National Leaders of Education and numerous Specialist Leaders of Education. This ensures that The Dean Trust remains a high quality provider of education.
