Heritage Open Days 2019

We are delighted to be taking part in this year's Heritage Open Days, opening our doors on Saturday 21st September, 1:30-5pm, at The Bear Church/Shaftesbury Christian Centre, Frankham Street, Deptford, SE8 4RN. 


Discover the history of the Deptford Ragged School and its impact on the community of Deptford over the past 175 years. Explore our collection; original documents, annual reports, minutes, crockery, certificates, letters, photos and architectural plans, uncovering their stories. We have many original objects and documents that can be handled and read for yourselves. 


We will also be running a family, all-age activity sharing your school memories.

We are particularly keen to hear from people who have memories of the Deptford Ragged School and the Princess Louise Institute (as it later came too be known).


Come along and find out what we're up and what we're about. 

It's a free, drop in event. You can find out more on the Deptford Ragged School Archive page of the Heritage Open Day website here.

Any questions, please email us using the contact us form below and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
