About Us

Headteacher's Welcome

At Deptford Green, high standards underpin all that we do, and the strength of our alumni and the ambitions of our students are a testament to this – impressive career pathways, high aspirations and notable destinations: it is our intent that every student in our care achieves their own version of success.

Our vision for the future is to become a leading Art school in Lewisham and beyond, and to complement this provision with an exceptional academic, pastoral and enrichment provision.

Deptford Green students are encouraged to take risks, challenge themselves, unearth passions and inspire one another. They open doors and relish in new opportunities. Our emphasis on the Arts and wealth of enrichment activities allows every student to uncover a world beyond the classroom, and the chance to explore life-changing endeavours.

A key aspect of our school is the community. From the welcoming reception team to our compassionate students, passionate staff to committed leadership team, our whole school community is at the heart of all that we do. We are diverse and inclusive, with the safety and wellbeing of every member as central to all that we do. We know here at Deptford Green that in order for students to rise to learning challenges both inside and outside of the classroom they first need to feel safe and nurtured. This is one of our core purposes.

We want our students to become powerful, expressive, resilient and confident people, who push boundaries and are ready to make a difference. Our offer is defined by creating opportunities and preparing for the future, laying the foundations for success and providing a platform for students to jump start their next step from.

The only question is, are you ready to join us?
