Thomas Deacon Academy is an independent state school that sits within the Thomas Deacon Education Trust portfolio of schools. The Academy board includes Directors from our Sponsors (Caterpillar and Thomas Deacon Foundation), our Parents and the Local Authority.
Our achievements are monitored by the Department for Education and the funding comes to the school directly, not via the Local Authority. We work closely with Peterborough City Council in a range of areas that support provision for our students.
As well as working closely with local partners such as Peterborough Regional College, the University of Cambridge and local primary schools, the Academy also plays a significant role in the wider community.
