Sir John Brunner Foundation

Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College
“Outstanding by Tradition”

Sir John Deane’s has a long and proud history dating from 1557 when our founder, Sir John Deane, established a charitable trust and gifted land on which the school was built. In 1908 the school moved to its current riverside site thanks to the generosity of another benefactor, Sir John Brunner. His kind donation, which marked the 350th anniversary of the school, laid the foundations for the next 100 years and inspired a new generation of students.

Sir John Deane’s has evolved and honed its specialism through several stages including a Boys Grammar School, a mixed school and in 1978 it became a mixed Sixth Form College and since then has continued to provide excellent education for the children of mid-Cheshire and beyond.

Sir John Deane's successfully converted to a Multi-Academy Trust on April 1st, 2018 with the creation of the Sir John Brunner Foundation.

The Sir John Brunner Foundation recognises the importance of first class education in shaping individuals with a strong moral compass who are driven by loyalty, compassion and a strong sense of contribution to their community and to their country.
