A warm welcome to Dean Trust Ardwick. We are part of a group of high performing schools within the Dean Trust. We opened in 2015 and now enjoy being a full school of Year 7-11 pupils in the heart of the local community.

Welcome to the new school year of 2021-22, a year of cautious optimism as we aim to return to as much normality as possible, and where school is a place where our pupils are excited to come, proud to belong, and really enjoy. With our second set of good Key Stage 4 results under our belt, a new extension providing more classrooms, an extra dining room, and a fabulous team of staff, we have returned to school as passionate as ever to serve our pupils by empowering them all to find their purpose and thrive as citizens in the world. That is our reason for being here, and we aim to fulfil this by providing all pupils with a curriculum which exposes them to powerful knowledge, places them on an ambitious pathway, and develops those character traits needed to seize the opportunities that exist. We look forward to rekindling and strengthening our positive relationships with the local and wider community, including restarting our popular coffee mornings, and whole school and community events which bring people together and enable us to be an integral part of the Ardwick community. It is time now to move forwards not backwards, look up not down, ahead not behind to make this a special and memorable year in Dean Trust Ardwick's short journey so far, where we all truly 'Believe, Succeed and Achieve'.
