About Us

The Dean Academy is a mixed 11 – 16 sponsored academy with a comprehensive intake (we do not select students on the basis of ability). Our sponsor is Prospects Academies Trust, an educational training and services provider with many years of experience supporting the education sector. The Dean Academy opened in November 2012. Prior to that date the school was Whitecross School, a foundation 11 – 16 mixed comprehensive school, which itself replaced Lydney Grammar School in 1973.
