Deer Park School is a modern, purpose-built 7FE Secondary School with capacity for 1050 pupils and potential for future expansion.
It is located at the heart of the Uplands Development in Hedge End and backs onto a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC).
The school consists of two buildings - the main school building, which is three stories high and a separate two storey Sports Hall building. The school has been designed to provide a high quality learning environment that is safe and stimulating, and supports and facilitates the school’s ethos of care, opportunity and quality, is non-discriminatory and encourages participation of all students.
At the heart of the school building is a light and airy triple height atrium. A wide variety of teaching spaces flow around this central space, including a central library/ learning resource centre (LRC), general classrooms, information communication technology (ICT) studios, science labs, art /design and technology rooms, special educational need (SEN) rooms, and a music and drama performance hall. The Sports Hall building includes a four court sports hall, a multi-use activity studio and associated changing facilities. These two buildings lead out onto hard paved and grassed social areas, with a wetland habitat area beyond.
Other external facilities include a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA, to be completed in 2022) with three netball courts, a combination of grassed sports pitches and a running track, which are accessed via our private pedestrian boardwalk that spans over a stream flowing through the woodland setting.
