Welcome to Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys

Welcome to our Sixth Form website. I am proud to be part of this community: a co-educational Sixth Form, which prides itself on being dedicated to creating a family atmosphere and knowing all of our students well. Here at the Poly, high aspirations are the DNA of our school where each student is seen as an individual who can achieve outstanding academic success.

Our results speak for themselves. Our students are testament to the dedication and commitment they have in reaching and exceeding their goals. Our Sixth form motto reads "tomorrow's leaders" and we believe that to lead our communities in the future, you will not only need to work on academic success, but you will also need to continue to become well-rounded young adults who recognise that education is for life, not solely for results.

We offer a cultural and enrichment programme to give you the opportunities to broaden your experiences, as well as 2 weeks' work experience in Year 12.

As you move through our sixth form you will witness the challenges of entry into Higher Education, employment and training. Our highly experienced sixth form subject teachers and tutors will guide you through this process so your future choices are based on informed decisions to ensure your continued success on your journey beyond the Poly. The proof is in the pudding: approximately 90% of our students go on to university, with 20% of our students (double the London average) securing places at Russell Group universities.

Be part of what the Poly is all about: challenge for all students and high academic standards. We have excellent relationships between students and staff - a warm and a welcoming community dedicated to learning.

Here at the Poly, we offer a high-class education.

About us

Head Boy Welcome

Our student body values the importance of community. We have a family ethos in the sixth form that is enhanced through tutor time, which includes combined Year 12s and Year 13s in form groups.

We invite you to have a look around our sixth form, our success should not be kept a secret! Come and experience the buzzing atmosphere of our common room, the studious ambiance of our Collaborative Learning Suite and, of course, the exceptional learning that takes place in lessons.

Woolwich Polytechnic students will warmly welcome you into our sixth form. We are all extremely proud. We will leave here at the end of our years knowing that success breeds success. We want you to carry on this legacy.
