Elizabeth Woodville School provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all its students through a three year Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9) and two year Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11) provision.


Key Stage 3 Curriculum

In line with many schools across the country, as an academy, we do not have to follow the national curriculum; however, in order to build on the work students have completed in Key Stage 2 and to prepare for Key Stage 4 (GCSE and Vocational) courses we use the national framework as our starting point in planning schemes of work and programmes of study.

We have a broad Key Stage 3 curriculum. All students study Modern Foreign Languages (French & Spanish) in Years 7, 8 & 9. Students currently study Design & Technology, Food and Art on a rotation, Music, Drama, Religious Studies, Personal Social Health & Careers Education (PSHCE) and Physical Education.

PSHCE is delivered within morning tutor time, assemblies and during a weekly PSHCE lesson.

Students also enjoy a varied and challenging PE programme each week, to build up their personal fitness and to develop vital life skills such as leadership, teamwork, communication, resilience etc.
