"This is a friendly place to go to school. Pupils are well behaved. They listen to their teachers and get on well with each other in their free time." (Ofsted, 2019)
The Deanes is a small secondary school in Thundersley with a local reputation for being family orientated and aspirational with our students.
We are proud to be part of the South East Essex Academy Trust (SEEAT), working closely with Westcliff High School for Girls, Hadleigh Junior School, Westborough Academy, Prince Avenue Academy and Nursery, Holt Family Junior School and Rochford Academy.
Our staff deliver high quality lessons which challenge, engage and inspire students of all abilities. Relentlessly focusing on student progress ensures, not just exam success, but also that individual students develop self-esteem and confidence through hard work and dedication to their studies.
For this to happen, The Deanes has very high expectations of our students. We expect students' behaviour around the school to be impeccable and every lesson must be characterised by a postive learning environment, free from distractions.
Our vision is set out in our 6 Promises.
