Welcome from the Principal


I am delighted that you are interested in looking at the Deanery CE Academy website and finding out more about us.  This is the most amazing venture and one that I believe is going to be truly transformational for Swindon.  We have been blessed with the most incredible support already from Swindon Borough Council, Bristol Diocese, our local MP, our local Bishop, local churches, local schools, the national Church of England education office and St Mary Redcliffe and Temple school in Bristol to name but a few. 

We have built an exceptional school, with the most amazing facilities, inspirational staff and incredible students.  I believe that we have a duty to enable all our students to flourish when they are at school, to enable them to live life in all its fullness - this is the foundation of our ethos and will form a significant part of our dialogue in all aspects of school life.

Whatever your reason for visiting our website today, I hope you will find some sense of the vision of the school that have built and will be as excited and inspired by it as we are.

I have included some of my photographs that I have been keeping as a record of the project, I hope it will give you an idea of how exciting this project is and what a privilege it has been for me to be involved at such an early stage!
