About The Deanery Church of England High School and Sixth Form College

A school with a church foundation has existed on this site for 89 years. In 1932, All Saints’ Senior Church School was founded for ‘the nurture of the hearts and minds of children’ in Wigan. In 1971, All Saints’ School closed to allow the formation of a new high school. For the last 50 years, The Deanery Church of England High School has honoured that rich legacy and has been a beacon of distinctive Christian education for generations.

Our school sits at the heart of Wigan and serves young people and families from every parish of the town.

Our school’s history can be seen in its badge:

o 30 dots, representing the 30 traditional parishes in the Wigan Deanery
o The Red Rose of Lancashire
o 3 crosses to represent the 3 original constituent schools
o A branch from the Wiggin Tree

o Our pupils and students are fantastic – they are highly motivated and engaged young people with supportive and caring parents.
o As a Church of England school, we aim to maintain a distinctly Christian ethos while being genuinely welcoming and inclusive.
o We have over 1450 pupils and students, including over 150 in our Sixth Form.
o The school admits 250 children into Year 7 each year, and is heavily oversubscribed.
o In 2020, we had over 850 applications for one of our places in Year 7 in September 2021.
o We offer a rich co-curricular provision, including music, drama and sport.
o Our school building was completed in September 2017 offering state of the art facilities.
o Our Sixth Form Centre gives us a modern area in which to work and study. It allows us to have a distinctive sixth form which is still closely linked to the main school.
o In 2021, our Sixth Form was the top performing college in Wigan for Value Added and above national averages.
