Uniform is an important part of The Deanery CE Academy: it is distinctive, innovative and aspirational.


We want students to stand out, feeling proud to wear a very distinctive and smart uniform


We want students to be forward thinking, using their time at school to prepare for life at further and higher education and work


We want students to aspire to be their very best, demonstrating integrity, passion and commitment to their learning

To order your childs uniform, please go to the Trutex website and use school code LEA00960SC. You will need to create an account in the first instance.
