'Success for Everyone' - Celebrating GCSE Results Day - Thursday 24th August 2023
GCSE Results 2022-2023
The Class of 2023 is celebrating a fantastic set of GCSE results at Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys with increases in English and Maths at grades 4 and 5, as well as impressive results in a wide range of other GCSE's.
Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys is delighted to celebrate GCSE examination results that make us all proud.
Our boys have matched our last pre-pandemic results of 2018-19 and, indeed, at 4+ and 5+ in English and maths, even more students have secured these grades, vital for future study. This is a significant achievement as this year’s cohort still bore the brunt of substantial and prolonged disruption to their learning, unlike the class of 2018-19.
Also, the gap between our disadvantaged students and the whole cohort was significantly below the national gap, proving that our Vision of "Success for Everyone" is at the heart of all we do.
The boys, staff and parental support have been instrumental in overcoming the pandemic challenges; the students have achieved truly great things by demonstrating resilience, ambition, and discipline. Many students attended additional lessons voluntarily every Saturday - such commitment is highly impressive and reflects our values of Care and Unity.
Huge congratulations to our staff, many of whom have been part of The Poly for many years; they have worked incredibly hard and delighted in seeing the students being rewarded with such success.
Head of School, Mr Tom Lawrence, says:
‘I am delighted and immensely proud to announce that Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys have achieved GCSE results that compare very favourably to the pre-pandemic years, now that support given to the last three years’ cohorts has been removed for this year’s students. Our success translates to even more deserved opportunity for our outgoing year 11s, many of which we are welcoming back to extend their success in our Sixth Form. I must also congratulate teachers for their enormous efforts and offer my gratitude to parents for supporting their sons and us through these times: everyone’s efforts have been rewarded with great success’.
CEO of PolyMAT, Mr Tim Plumb states:
"I am delighted that the hard work has, once again, paid off and our students have gained the results that they richly deserve. Our Sixth Form will again be oversubscribed as students’ progress to the next stage of their education.”
