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).  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.
