Departments and our Curriculum

Woolwich Polytechnic is at the cutting edge of educational improvement.

We offer an exciting, innovative and personalised curriculum that changes in response to national requirements. All stages of our curriculum are designed to inspire and challenge students at all levels of their education. Our technology college status stresses the importance of information and communication skills in underpinning and empowering your son's independent learning, which will put him at the forefront of technology.
In our most recent Ofsted inspection it was noted that we have "an unusually high proportion of Advanced Skills Teachers and Lead Practitioners" who encourage
creative, responsive and effective approaches to learning and teaching. Academic, personal, social and leadership skills are developed through our varied curriculum that includes artistic, spiritual, musical and sporting opportunities.

We are pleased to able to offer an exciting and challenging new curriculum to our most able pupils through our Grammar School Intake programme. The aim of this programme is to provide grammar school curriculum experience within an outstanding, inclusive and caring comprehensive school. Pupils will be selected for the programme based on their previous achievements and school testing on intake. The GSI will link closely with our Sixth Form TAP (Top Achievers Programme) to ensure our most able pupils are provided a seamless educational experience from Year 7 to Oxbridge and beyond.
