About Polymat

PolyMAT was established in 2014 when our only school was Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys, a long-successful 11-18 Comprehensive school serving the people of Thamesmead.   In September 2019, we opened our brand new ‘sister’ school – Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls - and we now offer secondary provision for over 2800 students.  In November 2023, we welcomed our first Primary School to the Trust with the addition of Bannockburn Primary in Plumstead, a large feeder school to our two secondary schools.  We currently provide education to around 3600 students in our local area and look forward to expanding further to create truly special educational opportunities for our local community.  By being a cross-phase Trust, we believe that we can design the learning journey “through the eyes of the child” and minimise any disruption of transitioning between phases.

Our Vision is “Success for Everyone” and this places inclusion and well-being at the heart of everything we do. More than anything else, PolyMAT is an organisation that puts people first as we know that they are our greatest asset. We pride ourselves on the quality of our relationships and the shared desire to give our students the best possible opportunities to become the people that they want to be.  We hope that you share our passion for putting people first and creating the most positive environment possible for success to thrive; we always know that we get the best from ourselves when we help others get the best from themselves.

Education is a highly rewarding vocation and we all feel privileged to be in a position to give young people amazing opportunities. We feel that we are on an exciting journey, one where we feel challenged every day and proud that we are always looking for ways to give our students better life chances and our staff a better quality of life. We are a happy community and place great emphasis on creating a workplace that is fulfilling and puts people on a journey of development, both professionally and personally.  We feel truly blessed with the amazing staff that we work with and their never-ending drive to do special things to help our students.  We are ambitious and dedicated and will always place the quality of education before any other desires.   If you are interested in working with us, please contact one of our schools directly, and we will be very happy to discuss opportunities with you.
