Woolwich Poly Sixth Form, an OFSTED rated Outstanding sixth form, are celebrating another successful year of Post 16 qualifications. Their motto of “Tomorrow’s Leaders” is certainly pertinent to their diligent Class of 2019 with over half of their students graduating with grades A*-B.
Among the top performers is Kelvin who obtained outstanding results in some of the most challenging courses: Maths (A*), Further Maths (A), Computer Science (A) and Physics (A). He said, “I would like to thank all of my teachers here at the Poly – I couldn’t have done it without them!” Another student, Perfecta, an A* student states, “what a rollercoaster the last two years has been; I can’t wait to see what the future brings. I am so proud of my achievements.” Other students among the top achievers include: Raees (AAB), Fikayo (AAB) and Alex C (AAB).
“We are extremely proud of our students who have achieved grades to be commended in the face of the increasingly rigorous nature of A-Level courses, proving that the high expectations of both students and staff, along with the countless hours of study, has all been worth it!” States Hannah Elliott, Head of Year 13 and Deputy Head of Sixth Form.
Head of Sixth Form, Miss Anne Bassi said: “It is a privilege to work with such wonderful young people. Here at the Poly, we foster a culture of success, as witnessed by today’s celebrations.”
Head Teacher, Mr Plumb, is overjoyed by the results: “This is a fantastic set of results for both the school and the Royal Borough of Greenwich. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, our Governors, and, of course, the students themselves for their sheer determination and hard work!”
It is no surprise that Woolwich Polytechnic is the Sixth Form of choice, for many, in South East London and is substantially oversubscribed.
