Deptford Schools

Deptford Schools and Colleges

Deptford Schools and Colleges Admission and Discharge registers are an under-used resource. They give the dates of admission and discharge, date of birth, the school attended prior or subsequently, address of student, guardian, and, if lucky, more personal info, such as medical problems.

FamLoc lists Deptford schools and colleges, include info about admission and discharge registers, and include a map link of the schools locations.

Some Deptford schools were named after a nearby main road; please note the school may not actually be in that road. Similarly, the address given directly after the name of the school is that allocated by the Local Authority and need not necessarily be the actual address.
Many schools had a change of name (typically from a street name), or the same school name was used in different locations at different times. Note also the intake type could change, for example from a mixed school to an all-girls school.
Remember that the school or college attended might not be in the same town as the student lived.
We include Admission and Discharge Register information, which can be viewed at the Local Record office or the London Metropolitan Archives.

Much more information on Deptford schools – and Deptford in general, can be gained from Deptford History Books:

Deptford Park School

Deptford Park School

Our map link shows the school in Evelyn Street, opposite Deptford Park. Hopefully, someone will enlighten us as to whether its location is Deptford Park or Deptford High Street.
