Welcome to the Poly Website

Woolwich Polytechnic is a school that prides itself on demanding the highest standards from students and staff alike. We have a pastoral care system that is second to none that supports a 'no excuses' culture for behaviour and achievement. Described by Ofsted as "Outstanding", in 2016 the school once again achieved superb GCSE results: 73% of students achieving 5 A*-C grades (including English and Mathematics) against a National Average of 53% (and a National Average for boys of 47%!). Out of the 55 Similar Schools on the DfE School League Tables website, Woolwich Poly ranks number 1 by 4% points - a wonderful achievement of which we are extremely proud.


Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls to open in Thamesmead

PolyMAT is thrilled that its recent application to open a girls' school in Thamesmead has been approved by the DfE. The school is expected to open in September 2018 for Year 7 pupils (aged 11.)

The school will be an 8 form entry secondary school which will be the sister to Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys, an Ofsted rated Outstanding school and will be part of the multi-academy trust, PolyMAT. This new school will create a vibrant and inclusive environment by welcoming a rich and diverse variety of faiths and world views. Head Teachers, Mr Plumb and Mr Parker said "this is a great day for the families of Thamesmead. The girls can look forward to the same outstanding education as the boys receive. We are overwhelmed by the amount of local support that we have received".

Work will begin shortly on designing a school fit for the 21st century and we envisage a strong collaboration with the boys' school, especially in the Sixth Form. The school will hold open evenings in the coming months to share progress with the local community.
