Shaping the ACADEMIC HEART of the School, our 21st Century Campus

The development of a 21st Century Campus is a key element of the Futures Campaign at Dean Close, which is our vision to ensure the school is equipped to provide outstanding education in the decades to come. We are proud to have achieved Phase 1 and Phase 2 of our academic quad redevelopment project and are profoundly grateful to the generous donors who have supported us in this significant enhancement in facilities for our pupils.


It is an exciting time for Dean Close as we embark on the largest investment in the School's history, to date. We are passionate about our young people and hope that you will join us as we make this investment in their futures. They deserve it.

Shaping the ACADEMIC HEART of the School: Phase 3 Humanities

Our achievements to date

Phase 1 and Phase 2 are complete! 

We have already witnessed a huge transformation within the school from the first two phases of our 21st Century Campus campaign.

Phase 1

This saw the relocation of our day pupils into a brand new Day House Village -this has been life-changing for our pupils. The cost of the project was £5 million and this was fully funded by The Dean Close Foundation. 

Phase 2

The first phase of the 1886 Centre, providing classrooms for Maths, Business and Economics, was completed in 2021 with the help of our generous supporters. It cost £1.5million to build and half a million of this was raised through our fundraising. The Centre has created a modern teaching and learning environment that has encouraged our pupils to develop business skills and to interact with real world businesses, as well as facilitating a truly inspirational and outward-looking approach to the teaching of Maths, Economics and Business Studies.
