    Deputy Headteacher with responsibility for Sixth Form

    With the planned expansion of the Sixth Form, the ambition is to make Woolwich Polytechnic the first choice for Greenwich and local students who wish to pursue KS5 academic studies and to become one of the largest and most successful Sixth Form provisions in the country. In particular, we want the Sixth Form to be just as popular with students from Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls as it is with those from Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys.

    This new post reflects this ambition and the leadership necessary to make it a reality.

    The successful senior post holder will lead and take responsibility for the school’s outstanding sixth form. This is an expanding Sixth Form that will cater for up to 620 students when full. They will foster an ethos of hard work and the excellent pastoral care that is evident in both our existing secondary schools, providing a solid environment for our Sixth Form students to flourish both within the Sixth Form and beyond at university and the world of work.

    • Lead strategically,
    • Lead the Sixth Form,
    • Lead collaboration,
    • Lead staff,
