Howard School

Howard Logo

Welcome to Howard School. This is a county comprehensive co-educational day school which caters for students of the 9-13 age range. It is a purpose built middle school and we are extremely proud of its excellent facilities which include well equipped design technology and art rooms as well as two purpose-built science labs. We also have a huge sports barn and extensive fields attached to the school.
Our website aims to give you a flavour of what we as a school try to achieve in terms of curriculum as well as the organisational procedures you need to be aware of if your child is going to join our school. We have a well-developed curriculum and work hard to ensure new innovations are successfully integrated.
You will find that the school has a very caring ethos. All pupils, regardless of ability are well supported and guided to ensure they make the most of their curricular and other opportunities.



Magna Carta Painting WorkshopMagna Carta Painting Workshop

On Thursday the 12th of June Howard Middle School hosted a visiting artist sent by the Bury Society. Fifteen year 7 pupils worked all day on a large painting of King John signing the Magna Carta. The preparation work for this painting had been done at the end of May when this group of pupils visited the Magan Carta exhibition at the Cathedral. They saw one of only four remaining copies of the famous document and made drawings on the theme of its signing. This painted panel will form part of an illuminated  'tower of pictures' which will be on display in the Abbey Gardens in October. This is all part of the town's celebration of the 800 year anniversary of the Magna Carta. On both the visit to the Cathedral and the one day workshop I was very proud of the behaviour and hard working attitude of our pupils.

Kieron Turner, Buster Wappett, Ella Watkins, Tabitha Keymer, Harriet Smith-Pitt, Rhianna Woods, Ellie Davies, Amy-Jane Reed and I along with Ms Bethell and Miss Drabik went to a gifted and talented language morning at County Upper School.

We all learnt Japanese, Spanish and French. We learnt how to read and write our own names in Japanese. In Spanish, we learnt about Cafe Menus and we spoke Spanish as well. Lastly in French, we learnt about the weather and activities.

Many thanks to Ms Bethell and Miss Drabik for walking us there and back.
