[The Family Room discussion] Re: Deptford Green
We ended up not going for DG, but we absolutely loved it and the decision not to pick it was a hard one. We had a second tour and a meeting with the head of Yr7 and SENCO as part of our research, as well as the very impressive open evening, and found the staff very caring and committed. We were very struck by the confidence and passion of the pupils we met. Also, last year it went into federation with Conisborough College in Catford, which turned around the formerly notorious Catford Girls into a school going from strength to strength (still a local authority school), so I reckon this is an excellent time to be part of the school.
I still have some regrets that we went elsewhere!
