1. We are thrilled to announce that Dean Close School has been shortlisted for the SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Award for Independent School of the Year. Winning this award would be a wonderful way to give public recognition for the extraordinary and usually invisible efforts every pupil and member of staff make to create this remarkable community.

    Dean Close is not just a school but a vibrant, creative and colourful community of incredible individuals who work together to create an environment where each and every pupil is given the opportunity to achieve and thrive. Staff and pupils give over and above what is requested of them time and time again, staying late for music rehearsals, travelling to matches in all parts of the country, organising visits, trips and speakers to enrich pupils’ learning, providing extra coaching or tutoring to achieve the very best grades or just reassuring a pupil who may be missing home. Within a caring, supportive and secure family environment everyone at the school strives to help the pupils become the very best that they can be not only for themselves but in their relationships with others around them as well and with a particular emphasis on service to the wider local, national and international community.

    We would love it if you and your family/friends could vote for us, it only takes a few minutes.


    Voting closes on the Monday 30 April 2018
