Our curriculum supports Promise#1 by:

Developing individuals that understand society, build a firm set of personal morals and engage in the community in which they live and understand its culture.

The Deanes is a smaller than average 11-16 comprehensive academy, situated in Thundersley, Essex. The school admits 120 students each year.

"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. Pupils told us that it is fine to be different. They said that bullying is unusual and, if it does happen, adults deal with it well." (Ofsted, 2019)

At The Deanes, our curriculum is underpinned by our iMatter ethos and values.  Our curriculum is instrumental in the fulfilment of our iMatter Promises.  Our curriculum not only reflects the needs of our students and our community, but it promotes a love of learning and personal growth.

We do this with a creative and relevant curriculum which inspires and motivates all students to develop as individuals and achieve academic excellence. We support our students and equip them with the skills and attributes they need to become confident, determined and respectful young adults who have exciting and ambitious aspirations for their futures.

At The Deanes, we are committed to equality. We aim for every student to fulfil their potential no matter what their needs.  The Deanes is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children and families.
