Thomas Deacon Academy, Peterborough
The Thomas Deacon Academy opened in September 2007 and currently numbers around 2,200 pupils. The school is viewed here from the entrance on Queen's Gardens in the Dogsthorpe area of the city.
The Academy was designed by a team of architects working for Norman Foster (Lord Foster of Thames Bank) and was built at a cost of 46.4 million (GBP 46.4 million), ranking it as the most expensive state school construction project in the United Kingdom at that time. It attracted criticism from some educationalists when it opened because it does not have a playground.
The Academy was built on the site of the former Deacon's School, which opened in 1960. The school traces its history back to 1721 with the opening of Mr. Deacon's Charity School on Cowgate, which was endowed by Thomas Deacon, a wealthy wool merchant.
