Dear Parents and Carers,

I am delighted to introduce myself as the Headteacher at Dean Trust Ardwick. I work alongside the Executive Principal, Mr Tarun Kapur CBE to provide our pupils with an education of the highest standards.

As part of the family of schools belonging to The Dean Trust, we are rooted in traditional British values and high standards of academic performance, attendance and behaviour. We expect all pupils to try their best. The Dean Trust uniform is worn with great pride by everyone. The school opened in 2015 and we currently have Years 7, 8 and 9, by September 2019 we will have year groups from 7 – 11. Our children are taught and supported by a team of talented and enthusiastic staff who are committed to ensuring that every child is able to achieve well. Pupils follow an exciting and challenging curriculum and are taught in small classes with the right support at hand to help all children succeed, working with high quality resources and technology.

Dean Trust Ardwick is a comprehensive school which celebrates diversity and is open to girls and boys. Admission to Year 7 and other year groups is through the Manchester Admissions Office and follows current City Council policy.
