Enrichment and Experiences
At Deptford Green, we firmly believe that education takes place beyond the classroom, as well as inside of it. As such, we have developed an exceptional programme of enrichment and experiences, to prepare students for their future, allow them to benefit from a wealth of social, interpersonal and leadership prospects to enhance not only their CVs, but their personal development.
Our enrichment offer includes:
- Trips and experiences are woven through the academic year to complement the curriculum. Dynamic and exciting annual trips abroad include a ski trip to Switzerland and MFL trips to France and Spain; our Geography Department often frequent Canary Wharf and Deptford Creek for field trips, whilst our Humanities Teams take students to Mosques and Synagogues. Embedded within our Careers Programme are trips to the city to meet mentors and universities across the country.
