Cirencester Deer Park School

Friends of Deer Park

The Friends of Cirencester Deer Park School are a friendly group of parents who support the school by raising money for enriching initiatives and projects that will benefit pupils and enhance their learning.

Throughout the school year, we hold fundraising events, such as cookery workshops and a quiz night, and raise money by organising second hand uniform sales and selling refreshments at sports events, school productions and parents’ evenings.

Summer Refreshments

We have recently funded:

  • A new microscope camera for the Science Faculty
  • New school benches for outdoor spaces
  • Cooking equipment and bakeware for the new Food & Nutrition room
  • New jackets for PE Young Leaders.

Our latest fundraising drive is an exciting new project to improve the school’s outdoor spaces.

We are always pleased to welcome new parents to our meetings to share ideas and help organise events, and are keen to hear from any parents who are able to volunteer at any of our fundraising events.
