Thank you for your interest in the Thomas Deacon Academy Junior facility - an exciting junior school, catering for children from year 3 upwards.

The school is a modern, purpose built facility on the Thomas Deacon Academy site and is part of Thomas Deacon Academy. TDA Junior has the advantage of being able to draw upon the facilities, expertise and resources of the main Academy to enhance and extend the curriculum. Students at TDA Junior have an automatic right of entry to the main Academy.

We will provide a curriculum that will engage, develop and innovate, with a strong emphasis on high standards and good behaviour.  We want all of our children to become confident, well rounded individuals who can excel in the next stage of their education. 

This is an excellent opportunity for you and your child to be part of a new junior school and to work in partnership to shape and make the Thomas Deacon Academy a highly successful school.

We look forward to working with you and your children.
