Thomas Deacon Academy Junior College

Thomas Deacon Academy Junior College


Thomas Deacon Academy opened in 2007 as one of the UK’s first and largest Academies.

Today, 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, an excellent Sixth Form Study Centre 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.

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.

Visitors to the Academy often comment on the calm purposeful learning environment which our staff and students create and enjoy. We are committed to providing an excellent education which allows every young person to achieve the best possible set of qualifications. 

Equally, we value the importance of developing young people who are positive, confident, self-reflective citizens, fully equipped to take their place in the world.

Our House system ensures that students have the opportunity to be part of a smaller community: competing, socialising and celebrating with other members of their House. 

We offer students a range of exciting leadership roles and all learners are encouraged to participate in our excellent enrichment programme, which includes a very successful Combined Cadet Force, a flourishing Duke of Edinburgh programme and extensive extra-curricular opportunities in the sports and arts.

Peterborough is an exciting, fast-growing and forward-thinking city and there is fierce competition for places at our Academy. 

We are proud of our Academy and are always happy to provide opportunities for students and parents to tour our first-class facilities and experience our learning environment.

Here at the Academy, we believe it is our duty to ensure our students become the best they can be and reach their full potential. As part of this, we expect every member of our community to demonstrate our core values of trust, discipline and aspiration.

We believe our young people should leave us as positive, confident, self-reflective citizens that are fully equipped to take their place in the world. We place great emphasis on ensuring they experience a broad and balanced curriculum, with a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and a strong pastoral system to support them with life’s challenges.
