The roads around Thomas Deacon Academy and Peterborough Regional College are very busy and a little awkward at times with several cross-roads, bus stops, traffic lights and pedestrian crossings. These dangers increase significantly when you consider pedestrians, cyclists and cars pulling over to drop students off for school and college. 

Please may we respectfully request that parents take extreme caution when dropping their children at Thomas Deacon Academy, remaining mindful of other road users and observing the law at all times.

We thank you for your co-operation.

  • Free School Meals - Update 30th March

    Published 19/03/20

    Parents of children who are eligible for Free School Meals will soon be receiving an email from (If we do not have an email address for you, you will receive a text message with the e voucher detail.) Please follow the detail in the message and register for a 5 day e voucher.

    Free School Meals E Voucher System:

    Once you have selected your supermarket of choice, the next stage will be that you will receive the voucher to spend in store. Please note that this can take up to a further 24 hours to receive the voucher after you have selected the supermarket, however we understand there is a delay in some supermarkets issuing their vouchers, meaning that they are taking a number of days to fulfil the request. We are working with the supermarkets and Wonde to reduce the time taken for the voucher to arrive but please bear with us as we follow up directly. Once the voucher arrives, it will cover the full 5 day period to Friday and will not be a daily allowance. Please could we ask for your patience in the meantime.

    Thank you.

    Mr Carroll
