I am delighted to welcome you to Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls

Our school is dedicated to providing excellence in education for young women. We empower our girls to become strong role models and the leaders of tomorrow through our two core values of care and unity, as well as our pillars, which are leadership, excellence & resilience.

Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls is an environment that fosters girls’ talents and abilities. We believe that every child is unique and special and has the capacity within them to succeed. An all-girls’ school allows us to create an environment that is free of gender stereotyping. Our girls will not only excel in subjects such as English, drama, languages, and art, but also in subjects that have, historically, been male dominated, such as maths, physics and design & technology. Our girls of today will become our leaders of tomorrow through their academic excellence in a broad range of subjects. Every girl’s personal development is equally as important to us as is their academic progress.

Our outstanding pastoral care ensures that our students develop into young, well-rounded confident and articulate young women, who are ready to enter the world and create change for the better.

Ms L Williams
Head of School

We have high standards and high expectations of behaviour to create a safe and happy space for all. We believe that respect for each other, caring for your environment and behaviour for learning requires resilience, commitment, punctuality, and courtesy both in and out of lessons and school.

Our students are taught, and understand, the importance of kindness and responsibility to ensure no student feels left out.

We are part of the PolyMAT multi-academy trust which enables collaboration and sharing of good practice between schools in the belief that we are “Stronger together”. Our staff body is dedicated to ensuring your daughter has a world-class education in a state-of-the art new school building: a place where ‘Poly’, girls take centre stage. This allows them to achieve their true potential academically, socially, emotionally, and ethically.
