The Howard School

As part of The Howard Academy Trust, we are committed to a shared moral purpose; to make a positive difference to the lives of the young people in our community.

We endeavour to enhance the life chances of our young people by maximising their educational achievement. Our local and national reputation is one that continues to grow. We support our students to make good progress from their relative starting points.

At The Howard School we aim to:

- Provide an education that values every student as an individual
- Deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that ensures a solid academic education
- Create a disciplined environment that allows every student to develop a love of learning
- Offer a range of extra-curricular activities in sport, culture and adventure
- Support every student into the very best universities and high quality employment

We value training teachers immensely and want to ensure that we provide a solid foundation to any colleague who wants to teach. We believe building these solid foundations at the beginning of someone’s teaching journey is crucial in ensuring it is both a long and enjoyable career.
