Places for the Year 5 June/July Open Mornings must be booked in advance (see below). There is no need to book to attend our September Open Mornings and Open Evening, which are open to all prospective pupils and parents.
We encourage you to watch our Creating Futures videos on Joining Us. We recognise that the transition to secondary school is a big step and we are keen to continue to help families make informed choices about their children’s future education.

Explore our website
To further inform your planning and decision making, we encourage you to explore our website, and to watch our Creating Futures videos, filmed in 2020, which will help give you an overall picture of life at Deer Park. The Latest News highlights many of our pupils’ experiences and what we have been able to achieve together before, during and after lockdown. We are immensely proud of the commitment of our staff, our rich and diverse provision and our pupils’ achievements.
Talk with others
We also encourage you to talk to people in the local community who are already connected with the school as parents, pupils, members of our local governing body or staff, who can provide first-hand experience of all that Deer Park can offer. We have been inundated with positive feedback and praise for our provision for our pupils during lockdown, from both an educational and pastoral perspective, as well as for the plans we have put in place to ensure their safe return to school.
We recognise that not everyone will want to visit Cirencester Deer Park School in person in the Autumn Term, especially if they are already familiar with the school through older siblings. Therefore, we will ensure you will be able to find information about joining our school on our Admissions page.
We encourage parents to keep in contact with us and should you have any questions regarding admissions and the transition to Deer Park, please do not hesitate to contact Allison Boucher, our Admissions’ Secretary. She is able to arrange a personalised tour of the school throughout the year on request and can be contacted by phone on 01285 646558 or by email.
