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.



Howard Middle meets Strictly Come DancingHoward Middle meets Strictly Come Dancing

If you weren't there on Wednesday 16th July, you missed an amazing spectacle!
Howard Middle meets Strictly Come Dancing provided a unique opportunity for many of our students to show what they could do on the dance floor.

Beautifully presented in costumes donated and adapted by the staff, Year 8 boys and girls performed all the favourite dance styles to music from top film scores: the Waltz, Jive, Cha Cha, Paso Doble, Charleston. There was a lively group Tango, and a Jive featuring music from "Grease" The evening began with film music performed by the school's Big Band, and dance items were interspersed with Choir songs continuing the musical film theme.

The evening was ably compered by Mrs Cresswell and Mr Davenport, whilst Mrs Rogers, Mr Cox, Mr Banns and Mr Hyndman did their best impressions of Darcy Bussell and Craig Revel Horwood as the judging panel.
Mention must be made of the stunning decorations throughout the Hall which completed the whole impression of a Hollywood theatre. Many thanks to all staff for their hard work in compiling the show.
