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.
