Our School

Deer Park School is a modern, purpose-built seven form entry Secondary School with capacity for 1050 students and potential for future expansion.

It is located at the heart of the Uplands Developent 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, Additional Support (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 floodlit Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) with three netball courts, a combination of grassed sports pitches and a running track and a full size floodlit 3G with seating and dugouts, which are accessed via our private pedestrian boardwalk that spans over a stream flowing through the woodland setting.
