The sun shone, the families queued in staggered year groups nicely with a buzz of excitement!
BPET CEO Mark Greatrex, BPET Chair of Trustees Claire Delaney and Head Teacher Alex Lee welcomed the children in, then teachers led their pupils to their classes! Lunch was amazing and playtime fabulous! We cannot wait to watch the school grow into this fabulous facility!

We are so proud of the staff team at Deer Park School for the determination, continued outstanding teaching in the temporary site and for their teamwork whilst the completion and fitting out of the new permanent building has come to fruition in the last few weeks!
Thursday 22nd April 2021 is a new home, new chapter of this outstanding schools history.

12 March 2021:
It has been a long journey and with the COVID-19 pandemic slowing progress during 2020, we are so excited to be so close to the completion of the permanent home for Deer Park School at 389-391 Richmond Road, Tw1 2EF.
This week’s site visit, captured here in this video montage, shows there is still some work to be done before we BPET take control in the next 7 – 10 days, but that many features of the school are complete.
Once BPET and Deer Park School take control of the site we will be using the remainder of the spring term and the Easter break to install all the furniture, fittings and finally school teaching equipment into the state of the art building, ready for our pupils to start onsite on 22 April 2021!
