About Thomas Deacon Academy
Trust, Discipline and Aspiration
Thomas Deacon Academy was one of the first Academies to be created and continues to thrive through our core values of Trust, Discipline and Aspiration. Through the success of TDA, we are now embarking the exciting next phase of our future with the incorporation of TDA Education Trust (TDAET). We continue to offer an aspirational learning environment for students from the ages of 7 to 18 years old.
Collaboration, educational research and professional development are at the core of how the schools within Thomas Deacon Education Trust work together.
In July 2015, Ofsted graded the Academy as ‘Good’ in all areas and we are moving forward in our continued journey towards ‘Outstanding’.
Our ambition to become a sponsor came from a desire for driving rapid educational improvement in order to transform the life chances of young people. This is achieved through aspiration and accountability, with a clear focus on building capacity.
The TDA values of:
- Trust: we are honest
- Discipline: we never give up
- Aspiration: we want the very best
- Most recently, July 2015, Ofsted graded the Academy as ‘Good’ in all areas and we are moving forward in our continued journey towards ‘Outstanding’.
