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.

Although we are currently in temporary premises, we are excited to move into our new building on Richmond Road in the coming months, and for the increased range of learning opportunities this move affords our children.

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.
