The Deanery will be an 11-18 Church of England Academy with a strong Christian ethos. The school will serve both the new Wichelstowe development and families from across Swindon who value the Christian ethos of the school.  This Christian ethos will be both distinctive and inclusive.  It will be distinctive in that it is explicitly rooted in the love of God for every individual and inclusive in that all students and staff, with or without faith, are equally valued (see the Admissions Policy). With excellent facilities for learning, especially for sport and the arts this will be a school with a strong and inclusive community focus. DBAT aspires to create an outstanding new school in line with the excellent national education record of the Church of England.
