Headteacher's Welcome

Elizabeth Woodville school is an inclusive comprehensive school with approximately 1100 students.  Our school is located on two sites, Roade and Deanshanger.  We operate as one school with staff working across both sites. There are many benefits to being on two sites, including access to excellent sporting facilities, a broad and balanced curriculum with a range of options to choose in key stage 4 and good quality staff. The most important benefit for our students is that each site has excellent pastoral systems which means that all students are known, and no one becomes just a number.

Our ambition is to create an exciting and vibrant learning community where students enjoy success in and outside of the classroom.  Our school values of: ambition, confidence, curiosity, leadership and respect are important as they are qualities which will enable our students to succeed in their future careers.

At Elizabeth Woodville we have a strong focus on academic achievement throughout the school and develop our young people to be independent and resilient learners. We are immensely proud of our inclusive ethos and of the positive relationships that we build with parents and the local community. In addition, we encourage our students to participate in extra -curricular activities so that they develop a wide range of skills and experiences which they can apply both in and beyond school. It is our belief all students can achieve and that EWS is the best place for them to do this.

We hope that you find this website useful; you are most welcome to come and visit us.
