About Thomas Clarkson Academy
Thomas Clarkson Academy puts students at the heart of everything we do. The best schools are underpinned by an ethos, drive and behaviours that are understood, respected and valued by everyone across the school community. Our vision is of a community where our students’ learning enables them to realise their academic and personal potential at the highest levels. We embrace ambition for all, by all, as the means to achieve this.
Our building is one of the most impressive and innovative schools in the area. Built on a grand scale, it is set on a large school site, with many specifically designated outside areas for students to play sport. Our building is light and spacious and all of our indoor facilities are contained under one roof. As part of their lessons and extracurricular activities, students have the opportunity to make use of our impressive facilities. These include a three-storey climbing wall, a planted living wall, a 450-seater theatre, dance and drama studios, sports halls, all weather pitches as well as specialist classrooms, computer suites, laboratories and workshops.
We are proud to be part of Brooke Weston Trust, who have grown into a family of 10 primary and secondary schools throughout the East Midlands, united by our mission and values. More than 7,000 students between the ages of 3-18 are now educated in a Brooke Weston Trust school, supported by more than 1000 passionate members of staff.
