About Thomas Deacon Academy
Thomas Deacon Academy
The Thomas Deacon Academy opened in 2007 as one of the UK’s first and largest Academies. It is a wonderful school with a strong sense of history throughout Peterborough. It has been at the forefront of education initiatives and system leadership since its residence in an outstanding building and its modern facilities since 2007.
The Academy’s core values of Trust, Discipline and Aspiration define who we are as a community and how we learn together. We believe that every member of our learning community should have the highest expectations and standards, showing trust and discipline in all that we do.
Whilst a building does not make a school, it is worth noting that Thomas Deacon Academy was designed by Norman Foster and Partners and in addition to our impressive main Academy our beautiful 43-acre campus includes TDA Juniors - a modern, light and purpose-built Key Stage 2 facility - and expansive playing fields and sporting facilities.
Moving forward, our vision for the Academy is a simple one: we want every member of our learning community to be the very best that they can be and achieve their full potential.
In July 2015, Ofsted graded the Academy as ‘Good’ in all areas and we are moving forward in our continued journey towards ‘Outstanding’.
The Thomas Deacon Education Trust (TDET) is a Multi-Academy Trust that unites and empowers like-minded schools to achieve the very best for their students and communities.
Thomas Deacon Academy is the flagship school for the Thomas Deacon Education Trust (TDET). As a Trust, we work across all key phases of education to provide every child in our community with the best life chances and high aspirations.
Collaboration, educational research and professional development are at the core of how the schools within Thomas Deacon Education Trust work together.
