The Dean Trust is delighted to welcome Abraham Guest Academy into their family of schools. From now on, this school will be called:-

Dean Trust Wigan

The Dean Trust have been working alongside Abraham Guest for over a year now and have supported improvements in examination results and standards. This will now accelerate as the school moves into the Trust.

The Dean Trust has very clear aims and objectives however, everything revolves around traditional high quality education where the starting point is good behaviour and respect. We look for all of our schools to be at least ‘Good’ as that is the expectation of parents and the local community. Moreover, we do not make excuses for a child’s starting point or background, as all children can behave well and deliver good outcomes.

The Dean Trust aims to provide schools of choice through high ambitions, aspirations and outcomes. Our motto of ‘Believe Achieve Succeed’ is embedded in our schools across our Trust and subscribed to by all.

To do all of this, the Dean Trust Wigan team, supported by the wider Dean Trust will be relentless in the pursuit of high standards.

The Dean Trust benefits from having a Teaching School at the heart of its operation that supports all of our schools through high quality, continuing professional development of our teachers, as well as providing a route for our student teachers directly into our schools.

This is a very exciting time for The Dean Trust as we begin our work with Dean Trust Wigan. We understand how to deliver ‘Outstanding Schools’; in fact our first school, Ashton on Mersey, has received 5 consecutive ‘Outstanding’ judgements. Much of this practice is now being replicated at Dean Trust Wigan and we really look forward to becoming part of the community.
