Cirencester Deer Park School is a secondary school with academy status in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England.

Founded in 1966, the school combined the Secondary Modern with the Grammar School. It is situated at the top of Tetbury Hill, an area which had been the site of a World War II American Army Hospital, in Cirencester Park. There are 1,053 pupils on roll at the school.[when?] In 2010, the school achieved an "Outstanding" Ofsted report.[1]

In 1991 the sixth form was separated into an independent college, Cirencester College, which now shares the same campus as the school. New buildings were built to replace those it had lost to the college.

It became a Technology College in 1995, and a beacon school in 1999. It was converted to an academy in April 2011.
