About Addey and Stanhope School
Addey and Stanhope is a school at the heart of the Deptford community in South East London. We are a small, caring, high-achieving school that is rich in tradition and history. Above all, we are a family at Addey and Stanhope – teachers, students, parents/carers and governors – a family that has the happiness, health and success of our students at the heart of everything we do.
The school is mixed, non-denominational, and was reclassified from a grammar school to a voluntary aided school in 1977. It is heavily oversubscribed each year and extremely popular with parents because of its reputation and ethos. We are proud of its comprehensive intake, excellent results and the fact that our students speak of Addeys as a ‘second family’.
At Addey and Stanhope we are committed to staff wellbeing and we provide a unique programme of professional development. We close early one day a week in order to facilitate this. We have strong links with a range of partners (locally, nationally and internationally) and this contributes to the professional learning of our staff.
Deptford is a vibrant and eclectic community with a thriving arts scene, only 5 miles South East of central London. The school has excellent transport links and is served by the underground, trains, DLR and buses.
