Welcome to Dean Trust Ardwick. Dean Trust Ardwick opened in 2015 and we are now a fully-fledged Year 7-11 school, serving over 1200 pupils. We serve the Ardwick and Longsight community and pride ourselves on being a local school for local children. Since our inception, we have become the school of choice for families.

Dean Trust Ardwick exists to empower pupils to find their purpose and thrive as citizens of the world. Our ambition is not merely finite ‘successes for our pupils but for them to thrive - continually grow and flourish. We are proud to offer an education that changes lives and helps pupils to become the change that they want to see in the world. We provide a knowledge-rich curriculum which exposes pupils to powerful knowledge, places them on an ambitious pathway and develops the character traits needed to seize the opportunities that exist in life.
