Welcome to the Wade Deacon Trust. Our partnership of schools was established in 2013 with a vision of creating excellence in the heart of the communities we serve. We are now 8 schools responsible for 6000 pupils across the Merseyside region working as equal partners who strive for excellence in all we do for the benefit of all our pupils.

In each of our schools, we are committed to providing many rich experiences and ensuring that every pupil has the opportunity to be and achieve their best. We are committed to a fully inclusive model of education where we do all we can to make sure no pupil gets left behind. All our schools work hard to help our pupils develop in the broadest sense as well as having expectations that all pupils achieve academic success. Our expectations are that the development of healthy lives and relationships, equalities, character, and resilience permeate through all aspects of life and the culture in each of our schools.
