This includes all aspects of school life with pupils achieving to the very best of their ability.

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 an excellent pastoral system 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 whatever their future ambitions.

Our recent Ofsted report confirms that we are going in the right direction and that we have a clear understanding of what we need to improve and how to improve.


There are many attractive benefits to working at EWS, including:

• Rural location

• On site Nursery

• On site parking

• Swimming pool/gym membership

• Joining the network of TOVE Learning Trust schools and the SWAN Teaching School Alliance, gaining access to local curriculum networks along with a wide range of opportunities for continued professional development at all levels.

The governors of Elizabeth Woodville School and the Trustees of Tove Learning Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
