Woolwich Poly moved to Thamesmead in the late 1990s. The site was originally home to Waterford School which was built in the 1970s. Over the years, there has been extensive rennovations to Woolwich Poly, with the additions of a Humanities block, an English and Art block and a dedicated Sixth Form block.
The school has a large number of Science laboratories, design technology workrooms and an Apple Mac suite. There is a good range of PE facilities including, a Sports Hall, a Gym and a MUGA (multi use games area). Many of the school’s facilities are available for hire.
