It is a real privilege to be Headteacher at Deptford Green School and to be able to work every day with inspirational young people and truly dedicated staff.

This is a vibrant community school committed to providing local children with an outstanding education.

We want every child to achieve their very best whatever their starting point and we do this by encouraging our students to have high expectations and to strive for excellence.

We maintain a commitment to delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. A strong emphasis on excellent English, Maths and Science balanced with great provision across the arts, sport, technology and the humanities.

We want our students to be safe and happy at school and as a result, enjoyment and engagement are important elements of life at our school. We expect our students to work hard, behave respectfully, dress smartly and take pride in their achievements; our commitment to student leadership, and citizenship education encourages our students to be active members of their school community and to develop the confidence, grit and resilience needed to be successful in later life. These qualities will help them to develop into well-rounded young people, ready to make a positive contribution to the local community and wider society in general.
