A very warm welcome to Deer Park School – a brand new primary free school which has opened in Richmond Upon Thames for children aged 4 to 11 years old.
The school takes great pride in its happy and warm environment, where each and every pupil is valued and supported. Pupils are Deer Park School are nurtured and guided through life; we aim to stimulate and inspire our child, develop their interests and equip them with lifelong learning skills.
We opened with one Reception class of 30 children, increasing our intake to two classes from September 2018, when we move to our permanent site. We will then admit up to 60 children each year to the Reception year and when full, the school will have 420 pupils on roll.
The school is currently situated at our temporary site at the rear of Richmond Adult Community College, Parkshot, Richmond, TW9 2RE (the school’s access is via Old Deer Park Car Park).

Please note: The admissions policy for Deer Park School for 2017/18 commits to there being 60 places available for reception classes in Sept 18 – making Deer Park at 2 Form Entry School. We are actively working with the Department for Education and Local Authority for the additional temporary space required to accommodate this expansion in our intake in Sept 18. The Trust will also be meeting with the Local Authority shortly to discuss the location of the admissions and hope to be able to clarify this before half term in mid-October.
Deer Park School is expected to move to its permanent location in September 2019.

There are a limited number of school places available for children who are in Year 1 and Year 2 and I am always delighted to talk to prospective parents and answer any questions you may have. Please click here to find more information on in year admissions.
