We aim to encourage, nurture and inspire our pupils, shaping their mindsets to seek opportunity, be curious about learning and develop a deep desire to impact the world around them.
Our pupils value other human beings; how they don’t just accept the world for what it is; how they seek change, ask more, challenge norms; how they expect more from life and venture to explore what it means to make an impact. Our vision is to inspire visionaries.
And so, every member of the Dean Close family arrives with their individual story, enriches their song whilst here, and departs, compassionately loved and respectfully valued, to continue their unique and telling journey. What an honour to be part of that adventure!
Director of Adventure
Studying at Dean Close has enabled me to challenge my views and beliefs as well as significantly broaden my horizons, which has massively developed me as an individual.
Pupil, Lower Sixth
A teacher’s week is full of magical moments and the children constantly delight and inspire me with their drive to find out more and share their knowledge.
Year 2 Teacher
Dean Close to me is about the children finding their voice; what they love doing and learning and being armed with the tools to embrace that.
