The Deanery CE Academy


Visit the website

The Deanery Church of England academy is a brand-new secondary school that opened in September 2019. It currently has a Year 7 cohort and will grow one year at a time, so when it is full in 2024 it will serve students age 11-18. The school serves both the new Wichelstowe development and families from across Swindon that value its Christian ethos. The Deanery’s opening is especially exciting and significant in Swindon, as it offers the only dedicated Church of England secondary provision in the town and surrounding area. The academy’s Christian ethos is distinctive in that it is explicitly rooted in the love of God for every individual, and inclusive in that all pupils and staff, with or without faith, are equally valued. It aims to become one of the best schools in the country, renowned for academic excellence and capable of instilling world-beating ambition in all its pupils, no matter their background. The enhanced facilities in sports and the arts also enable the school to offer unrivalled community use and engagement.
