I would like to welcome you to Thomas Deacon Academy. I feel privileged to be the Principal of this fantastic school.

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.

Our students also benefit from our outstanding facilities. In addition to our impressive main Academy building, 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.

We are part of the Thomas Deacon Education Trust which provides us with a great community and a network of support and expertise to draw from. Importantly, the Trust shares our vision to give our students the highest-quality of education possible and the best start in life.

I am delighted that you are interested in finding out more about our Academy. Please contact the office if you would like to organise a tour of the school.

Rick Carroll, Principal
