Vision, Ethos and Aims

Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls (11-16) will be a highly successful school that will be part of our multi-academy trust, PolyMAT. The schools will share the same vision, ‘Success for Everyone’, in addition to the same core values and relentless focus on achievement, progress and outcomes that has proved so successful with the boys’ school.  Our vision reflects the highest expectations of staff and the highest aspirations for all students. The school will have an inclusive family ethos, which will ensure that SMSC (social, moral, spiritual and cultural) is embedded deeply within our culture. This will be achieved through a strong pastoral system that nurtures responsibility, supports outstanding behaviour and teaches respect, tolerance and British values where students are encouraged to discuss and challenge ideas and beliefs. This culture will be underpinned by the work of Student Council. There will be four main strands to our vision:

  1. Learning – Every student to succeed,
  2. Teaching – Outstanding in every classroom,
  3. Leadership – Every leader inspires greatness in others,
  4. Ambition – The highest expectations for all.
