As Executive Headteacher of Dean Trust Wigan and Dean Trust Rose Bridge, I am privileged to work with an amazing group of adults and children. Our vision is to provide two good schools that each community is proud of. That is what parents, quite rightly, expect. Our common purpose is dedicated to helping children develop into confident, successful and responsible adults who are able to play an active part in society, regardless of their background or prior achievement. To do this we strive to ensure that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential and is empowered to be employable in the future through a variety of routes including university, training or apprenticeships.
We always place children at the heart of our planning and we pride ourselves on the relationships that our staff have with our pupils, caring for them throughout their education. All of our work is founded on simple principles and a ‘no nonsense’ approach towards education, with respect at the heart of our work. To achieve this we strive to employ, retain and develop the best possible staff who also believe that every pupil can do their best given a chance and encouragement. In addition, we also strive to deliver a first-class education based on high quality teaching, support and experiences outside of the classroom. At The Dean Trust we believe that success should be measured by both academic progress and achievement and also by one’s personal and social development, contribution to our community and to society. We also work closely with families to ensure that all our pupils are committed to learning and develop the character necessary to take advantage of all of the opportunities we provide. We very much welcome visitors and I strongly encourage you to arrange a visit so that you can experience Dean Trust Schools first-hand.
