- Why we applied to Deptford Green
- The reasons for applying to Deptford Green that parents stated on application forms were so heart-warming we have shared them with our staff and you can read them all here. Thank you for your feedback.
We are a fully comprehensive community secondary school for boys and girls. The Lewisham Admissions Policy is applied in cases where the school is oversubscribed. We have 234 places per year group with 36/37 places for children in each banding level. Approximately 30% of our students travel from other boroughs to study here.
Year 7 September 2015
Parents of Year 6 children from all boroughs were able to apply from 1st September to 31st October on: www.eadmissions.org.uk. Anyone who has not yet applied should contact their local authority urgently.
Those who applied online will be emailed the school that they have been offered on Monday March 2nd and those living in Lewisham borough will then need to log in to accept their place. Those who applied on paper will be posted a letter on March 2nd which will arrive shortly afterwards.
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, the Induction Day which will be held on Tuesday 7th July 2015 and our free summer school.
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 local authority to ask for this. 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. Once we receive details from Lewisham borough or your current Headteacher we will then invite you in for a meeting with key staff.
