About us

The Thomas Deacon Education Trust is a charitable organisation dedicated to raising educational outcomes across a range of primary and secondary phase schools and academies in the East Midlands. As a newly formed multi-academy trust we strive to provide outstanding teaching and learning for all and an ethos and culture that encourages everyone to be the very best that they can be

Our moral purpose is defined through our commitment to see every member of the learning community achieve their full potential. As a Trust, however, we recognise the importance and individuality of the local context of each of our schools and encourage diversity of practice whilst retaining a collective sense of unity in our purpose. ​

We put learners, and their learning, at the heart of everything we do.

Its modern facilities are set in a 43 acre campus and include the Senior Academy, TDA Junior: a purpose built, self-contained learning environment for KS2 children and TDA6, a purpose built study centre for Y12 & Y13 students.

Queen Katharine Academy

Queen Katharine Academy is a member of the Peterborough based Thomas Deacon Education Trust and opened in September 2017 having emerged from its predecessor school, The Voyager Academy. We are a larger than average 11-19 school in North Peterborough with approximately 1100 students on roll – 300 in the sixth form.

We seek to ensure that students receive a broad and balanced education that enables them to achieve their potential and take the appropriate next steps in their lives as valued and confident members of society.

We have high expectations of our students in all that they do and this is underpinned by a set of guiding principles focussed around the key concept of respect, ensuring that our Academy is a purposeful, calm and safe place to learn. Similarly, we have high expectations of ourselves and strive to provide high quality support and guidance alongside stimulating and engaging learning experiences.

In September 2014, Gladstone Primary was split to occupy two sites.

The Early Years Department, inclusive of Children’s Centre and Pre-School services, is now located at the Gladstone Street site, which opened in 1897.

The Key Stage 2 Department, running alongside community services, opened on the 8th September 2014 on Bourges Boulevard.

With a high proportion of our children learning English as an additional language we ensure that our curriculum focuses closely on literacy skills so that children can access learning across the range of early learning goals in the Early Years Foundation Stage and have the necessary core skills to make progress in their learning across the content the Key Stage 1 and 2 curricula.

The staff team works very hard to ensure the school curriculum is relevant, broad, meaningful and as enriched as possible. This means the children go out on educational visits regularly and visitors to the school are welcome. The children and staff are very well supported by the administration, site and catering teams.
