Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls, opened in September 2019, will be an outstanding eight form entry secondary school. It is the sister school to Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys and shares all the core values including the ethos, culture and outstanding pastoral system that makes the boys’ school so successful.

We intend to create a school that is recognised for providing excellence in education for young women. We will empower our girls to become strong role models and the leaders of tomorrow. Our girls will excel in all subjects, including those traditionally male dominated. We will nurture self-belief and encourage them to aim high and have a passion for life. They will stand tall in adversity with greater strength and resolve, proud to be resilient individuals.

Our holistic approach to pastoral care means that the girls will receive the same nurturing and support as the boys and, whilst many of the issues will be broadly the same, we recognise that there will be matters pertinent to the girls. We will use our considerable network of support to provide the expertise and strategies to address any such pertinent matters. The girls’ school will achieve academic excellence and will provide girls in Thamesmead with the same outstanding life chances that are currently available to boys.

Local residents and primary schools have long been asking for this provision. Our intention is to provide the girls with similar curriculum offer to the boys as we do not believe that gender stereotypes should be an influencing factor to lessons taught in the classroom.
