On behalf of our community, children and staff, a very warm welcome to Deer Park School. We are an outstanding free school serving the community of Richmond Upon Thames. We opened our doors in September 2015, for children aged 4 to 11 years old, and we currently have classes from reception to year 5, moving up to our first year 6 cohort in September 2021. At Deer Park School, we pride ourselves on offering a broad, enriching curriculum for all children, and on the strength of our integral school values.
The HEART values (happiness, enthusiasm, achievement, resilience and thoughtfulness) are central to our school life, and in our provision of a uniquely engaging and warm environment in which all children can learn, enjoy and succeed. We strive to inspire our pupils to be lifelong learners, equipping each and every pupil with the skills, knowledge and mindset to succeed in the next stage of their education. We believe in furthering strengths and interests while supporting each child’s developmental needs, and through creativity, curiosity and high expectations, we aim to support out children in becoming responsible, successful citizens.
We are delighted to have moved into our new premises on Richmond Road earlier this academic year. Within our state-of-the-art new building, our bespoke art studio, practical science lab, music practice rooms, astro-pitch, sensory retreat and purpose-built library, are among the many excellent facilities that support and extend our children’s learning and personal growth.
We are proud of our excellent team of staff, governors, families and community members who support our school and the children. If you would like to find out more about our school and community, please contact the school office to make an appointment. I would be delighted to meet you, to answer any questions you may have, and to show you around our flourishing school.
