Emma Thurston - Head Teacher


  • Headteacher, ex officio

"I am absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to lead Deptford Green school as the Headteacher. I have been teaching for over 24 years within my specialisms of art and photography and this is my first Headship position. 

I was born in London, grew up in Lewisham and am truly passionate about supporting London students to achieve their full potential opening as many doors to them in the future as we possibly can. 

As educationalist, I believe our most important job is to firstly ensure students feel safe and happy at school, once we have achieved this, for me it is all about helping them find out what they are good at and what they love".
