The need for a new primary school in the St Margaret’s / East Twickenham area of Richmond has been long been identified. We are delighted to announce that Deer Park School has been approved to move its permanent site to the site currently known as Ryde House, Richmond Road.
The Bellevue Place Education Trust had originally applied for the permanent site to be in the East Twickenham / St. Margaret’s area as its preferred location. This is the area that has always been identified as having the highest demand for new school places. When a site could not be found in the preferred area, London House was purchased and the name of the proposal was changed to Deer Park School. We have now moved our proposal back to the original preferred location.
Planning permission for Deer Park School was submitted on 11 July 2016 for a new school development at Ryde House, with Lidl. The school will be situated on the top floor and have a large play space at the rear of the school. For more information, please visit Deer Park School website.
We are delighted that this announcement fulfils our commitment to providing a school in the East Twickenham / St. Margaret’s area. The Trust has no plans to change the name of Deer Park School and with the planning application expected to be heard in October 2016, if approved, we will then close down this website.
