Year 7 September 2015

Parents from all boroughs will be able to apply from 1st September to 31st October on:

We are a full comprehensive school taking the allocated number of children from each banding level. The attached Lewisham Admissions Policy is applied in cases where the school is oversubscribed.

Approximately 30% of our students currently travel from other boroughs to study here.

Open events will be held on:

  • Thursday 18th September 2014 at 9:30am
  • Thursday 2nd October 2014 at 9:30am
  • Saturday 4th October 2014 at 10:30am
  • Wednesday 8th October 2014 at 9:30am and at 6:00pm

We recommend that you attend the events during the school day whenever possible as this includes a tour  of lessons which will give you a true insight into a typical school day here at Deptford Green School. We were delighted with the wonderful praise we received at our events in 2013. In fact we had so much positive feedback that we have created a whole web page of the feedback, which you can below.

You will then need to apply for up to six schools by 31st October 2014 and will receive your offer from your local authority in March 2015. If you apply online you will be able to accept your offer online that same day on your online account.

We will then write to you with a welcome pack and invite you to our interview evening which will be held on Tuesday 28th April 2015 and the Induction Day which will be held on Tuesday 7th July 2015. 

In Year Applications/Moving to the area

If you have moved to the area and want a place at our school you must contact your new local authority to ask for this. Phone numbers for these are listed to the left.

We are not able to process applications at the school and cannot contact you to discuss a start date for your child until you have been offered a place.

If you are considering transferring to Deptford Green from another local secondary school the first step is usually to inform your current school and your local authority. Once we receive details from Lewisham or your current Headteacher we will then invite you in for a meeting with key staff.
