Our Local Community

The Academy is in the heart of the local community. We are proud to be a part of Tilgate and of course, Crawley. We are also situated close to Gatwick Airport. We have strong links in the local community, with many pupils being the second or third generation in their family to attend Desmond Anderson. We are situated next door to Thomas Bennett Community College, K2 Sports Centre and Tilgate Park.

We are continually developing our curriculum to strengthen and enhance links with the local community. Most recently we have developed further links with local churches, banks, community projects and Crawley Football Club.
