- Global Partnership History
- The history of our Global Partnership programme which is celebrated its 10th Anniversary in 2014. We were one of the first state schools nationwide to set up such an ambitious Global Exchange programme, winning the prestigious International School Award since 2009.
International School Status and Global Partnerships
Deptford Green holds British Council International School Status and has a long standing partnership with St Kizito School in Kampala, Uganda. This has been running for over 10 years and continues to grow in strength and breadth with shared curriculum projects and cultural exchanges. We are also linked to Rainbow College in Lagos Nigeria as part of the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms Programme.
The youth exchange aspect of the partnership offers students and teachers the opportunity to visit partnership schools and immerse themselves in a different culture and environment.
Our most recent visit took place in 2015 when a group of students from Rainbow College came to Deptford Green and spent a week in school, buddying up with DG students and attending lessons. In 2016 a group of DG students and teachers are planning on visiting St Kizito School in Uganda.
Fundraising is an ongoing feature of the school community as it enables students and teachers from all the partnership schools to take part in exchange visits.
