Queen Katharine Academy is a member of the Peterborough based Thomas Deacon Education Trust and opened in September 2017 having emerged from its predecessor school, The Voyager Academy. We are a larger than average 11-19 school in North Peterborough with approximately 1100 students on roll – 300 in the sixth form.

Vision, Ethos and Values

We are acutely aware that the key purpose of the Academy is to put students first and everything we do must reflect that aim. Our vision is:

“To be an inclusive centre of educational excellence.”

As a Rights Respecting School, our purpose is underpinned by a set of values which inform all that we do:

All individuals will accept responsibility for their own actions, understanding that there is always a choice with their behaviour.

All individuals will be encouraged to understand the experiences and feelings of other's from their perspective.

All individuals will give assistance and encouragement to others to do and be their best.

All individuals will be empowered and encouraged to gain a feeling of satisfaction from being a part of the Academy and of their own achievements and those of others.

All individuals will strive to use their skills, qualities and talents to be the best they can be.

All individuals are part of a community and all individuals strive to embrace their place and role within this community, supporting and encouraging each other to do and be their best.

All individuals will hold a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions, beliefs, and practices that differ from their own.
