The Deanery’s school colours have been chosen and will be grey, purple and silver.
Uniform is an important part of The Deanery CE Academy: it is distinctive, innovative and aspirational.
Distinctive - We want students to stand out, feeling proud to wear a very distinctive and smart uniform
Innovative - We want students to be forward thinking, using their time at school to prepare for life at further and higher education and work
Aspirational - We want students to aspire to be their very best, demonstrating integrity, passion and commitment to their learning
We have chosen a supplier that will enable:
First impression of the uniform - We want The Deanery students to be seen as being smart and distinctive, both inside and outside the academy
Affordability - We want parents/carers to feel that the uniform is of excellent quality but affordable as well
Durability - We want the uniforms to remain looking smart and offer good value for money
Overall impression /credibility of the company - We we want to send a clear message that we deal with outstanding companies who have high ethical standards and support the distinctive Christian values of the academy

There are some really special features of our uniform:
- The jackets are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles - each one contains 31 plastic bottles in the outer shell
