Community & Art is at the heart of our school


‘Steering our journey towards becoming a leading Art school in Lewisham and beyond with exceptional academic and pastoral provision inclusively for all.’ 

Hello and welcome, my name is Emma Thurston, and I am incredibly proud to be Headteacher here at Deptford Green. 

Our school is a school where community is at the heart of everything that we do. The first thing that will strike you when you visit is the warm welcome you will receive from every member of our school community. From our lovely reception team, to our talented and articulate students and our committed and passionate staff. Our community is a diverse community, a community where the safety and wellbeing of every member is central to everything that we do. We know here at Deptford Green that in order for pupils to rise to learning challenges both inside and outside the classroom they first need to feel safe and nurtured. This is one of our core purposes. 

Catch the wind in your sails, explore, dream, discover. 

This is our school motto and this underpins our ethos and philosophy.
