Deer Park School has announced our plans for the permanent site to be at Ryde House on Richmond Road in East Twickenham / St. Margaret’s area of Richmond.
The Bellevue Place Education Trust, who are responsible for the running of the school, had originally applied for the permanent site to be in the East Twickenham / St. Margaret’s area as its preferred location. We are delighted to have secured a development agreement with Lidl for the former Ryde House, at 391 Richmond Road, East Twickenham.
Construction work is currently underway and we anticipate the building to be completed in 2019/20, when the school can move in. The works has been hit by early challenges, so a firm date for completion will be updated in our regular building update.
Our admissions point for the school is taken from the permanent site. Prospective parents who did not state Deer Park among their initial preferences and who now wish to make a preference for it, are advised to contact the Richmond School Admissions team as soon as possible. Similarly, parents who made a preference for the school but who, because of the school’s site move, no longer wish to hold that preference should contact the School Admissions Team within those timescales too.
