Thomas Deacon Education Trust

300th Anniversary of Thomas Deacon's legacy

TDET celebrates 300 years of Thomas Deacon’s legacy

This year we are celebrating a special milestone in TDET’s history. The first Thomas Deacon’s school opened in 1722, and we are proud to have been transforming the lives of young people across the city through education for an amazing 300 years.

TDET is now a family of seven academies, educating over 5,000 children and young people in Peterborough and surrounding areas.

We have been working with the charity Thomas Deacon Foundation to mark this historic milestone with a series of special events. So far these have included a special commemorative service at Peterborough Cathedral and a Trust-wide logo competition. We are planning more exciting events in the 2022/2023 academic year.
