With a new, outstanding sixth form Study Centre complete with superb IT facilities and quiet study areas, the students' sixth form education is strongly supported at Thomas Deacon Academy.
Students are very much at the centre of all we do from leading student voice to our thriving senior student team including Principal Students and House Captains. To help support the young people in our care we have sixth form tutors,
House-based Pastoral Heads, subject-based Progress Managers and the Sixth Form team all working together to monitor and track progress and attainment. The Sixth Form Team includes Mrs Jackson, who is expert in supporting students with their university applications especially “early entry” – medicine, dentistry and veterinary degrees and Oxford and Cambridge applications. Mrs Throne, specialises in careers, well-being, the development of good study practices / skills and personal support.
