Thomas Deacon Education Trust

Our Central Services

TDET is committed to providing the highest quality of education to all our pupils in all the academies and settings that make up our Trust. We firmly believe that education is not just about test and exam results, recognising however that these are important.


We want all our pupils to receive a rich and diverse range of opportunity, underpinned by the highest quality of teaching and care that enables them to thrive. This does not just include Education Services, our Business Services team supports educational outcomes by delivering expert and efficient support services that ensure the Trust and other schools that we work with are compliant with statutory and legislative requirements.


At TDET, we deliver evidence-informed leadership, guidance and opportunities to participate in the development of best practice and its implementation across phases and academies. We provide networking and collaboration platforms, via annual meetings and virtual team sites, in addition to a regular cycle of  school visits and one-to-one meetings with all key leaders in their respective fields.


We work within the framework of the Trust strategic plan and each individual academy’s priorities, offering pedagogical coaching within specific departments, with individual teachers or focus collectively on themes of common importance.


Together, we enable staff, leaders and managers to be effective in undertaking their responsibilities and focus on what matters - improving outcomes and opportunities for pupils.
