Deansfield School

Deansfield School | Queens Walk Ruislip

(Opening comments from a Ruislip, Northwood & Eastcote Local History Society publication from 1992)


Deanesfield opened on the 5th January 1944 and was called Victoria Park JMI at first, being intended for the children of the Victoria Park estate - Jubilee Drive, Diamond Road, Royal Crescent, Palace Way and Queen's Walk - which lay off Victoria Road, with all its streets associated with the old Queen.

The name was changed to Deanesfield on 16th March 1945, to remind pupils of the Deane family (descendants of the Hawtreys) of Eastcote House, whose large landholdings included Bourne Farm, on part of which the school was built.

There were 216 children on roll in 1944, but the numbers soon increased and temporary huts (latterly to become the Deanesfield Teachers' Centre) were erected in 1949 and a permanent infants' school was opened in 1951. The juniors expanded into the huts.
Owing to falling rolls the two re-amalgamated in 1980 and there were 250 pupils on roll in 1991.
