Set in 50 acres of beautiful grounds, Dean Close School is a long established co-educational day and boarding school for children aged 2-18.

The School believes that education is as much about building character and relationships as it is about gaining knowledge. The School is renowned for focusing on individual development, helping to nurture each child’s strengths and talents. The small classes and excellent learning facilities ensure consistently high academic results. A strong tradition of music, art, sport and drama and a wide spectrum of extra curricular activities make it possible for every child to achieve success and confidence. 

The School has excellent facilities including a 550-seat professional theatre, amphi-theatre, 2 water based Astroturf pitches, a 25m indoor heated swimming pool,
climbing wall, indoor rifle range, dance studio and fully equipped gymnasium. The Prep School has a new state of the art theatre and classroom block which opened in October 2013. DCS is a Christian School with a warm, caring family atmosphere where individuality is cherished. The School has a community of around 350 boarders who live in bespoke boys and girls houses. There is also a mixed junior boarding house designed specifically for children aged 7-10. There is a thriving boarding community on weekends as 90% of boarders are full time.
