Planning permission has now been granted for construction of The Deanery CE Academy. DBAT's new Church of England Academy is to be built on the Wichelstowe Development (Swindon) and will be a landmark at the centre of this new community.
Linda Culling, Principal Designate of The Deanery said, "I am absolutely delighted that planning permission has been granted; now I feel we can really make progress".
The Deanery will serve children aged 11-18 and take 210 students in each year. It is due to open in September 2019 and will take applications for Year 7 from September 2018. The school will increase choice in the Borough and will be the first Church of England Secondary in this area. Additional funding from Swindon Borough Council has been made available to provide enhanced sporting and arts facilities, including an all-weather pitch and a 440 seat auditorium. As the academy will be at the heart of the Wichelstowe community, there are plans to ensure that everyone can benefit from use of the academy's facilities.
