A Historic Moment for Plumstead Manor

Plumstead Manor SchoolFollowing a period of consultation starting in January, the Council’s Cabinet approved the plan on 10th May 2017 for Plumstead Manor School to become co-educational from Autumn 2018.  This means that we will take a first cohort of boys into Year 7 from that September.  Years 8 to 11 will remain as all female cohorts, and boys will not be introduced to these year groups.  Over the course of 5 years however, the school will move to mixed cohorts in Years 7 to 11.

We are very proud of our history as a girls’ school, with an all female education being offered to the young women of the local area on the same site since 1913.    In light of the need for more school places for secondary aged students in Greenwich, and with a new girls’ school opening up in the near future in the area, we have had to consider the best decision to secure a healthy and stable intake. This is an opportunity for the school to assert our core values of success, harmony, excellence and justice and to extend our offer of high quality teaching in a safe and happy environment to the young people and families of Greenwich.  We are mindful that we hold on to those important features of our school as an all girls’ institution from Year 7 to 11, as the introduction of boys to the school gradually takes place.    At this pivotal moment in the school’s history we are respectful of our past, and will take enormous care to preserve our ethos offering all young people the chance to thrive and flourish as we open our doors to boys in Year 7 from September 2018.

An important part of how we manage this will be to engage with our community – staff, students, parents and carers – about the next steps.  Please do keep an eye out for more information and opportunities to consider how we can address this important change together
