In October 2016 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of comprehensive education in Cirencester.
Cirencester Deer Park School and Cirencester College marked significant milestones in September this year: their 25th year as an 11-16 school and sixth form college respectively.
On Wednesday 12 October 2016 we were proud to mark Cirencester Deer Park’s 50th anniversary as a comprehensive school and to celebrate our achievements and those of our pupils over time. What better way to celebrate 50 years of comprehensive education in Cirencester than by offering our pupils a taste of learning across the last five decades during the day and opening our doors in the evening to the wider community, giving former pupils, parents, staff and governors the opportunity to relive their memories of the school.
It was a fantastic day and the staff looked incredible in their outfits from different decades. It was wonderful in the evening to welcome back so many former pupils and staff and hear them reminisce about their time at Deer Park.

As a fully inclusive school, we are, and always have been, committed to serving the diverse educational needs of our children. We were delighted to see that our exam results from 2016 put us in the top 15 % of schools nationally based on our ‘Progress 8’ measure, which is the Government’s preferred measure of school performance. This makes us the leading school in the South Cotswolds for results in 2016.
