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.



Pray SpacePray Space

We have just been lucky enough to host our third year of ‘Prayspace’ at Howard Middle School. Matt Rushby from BCY has spent a week in school offering all of our pupils a safe space in which to reflect and offer thoughts and prayers and focus on hopes and dreams.

All pupils in the school visit Prayspace during their RE lessons and then have the choice to make as many return visits at social times during the week; as always the room was a busy place! This year reflection focused on relating our personal life journeys to the events and meaning of the Christmas Story. Stations offered pupils’ the opportunity reflect on people in the world who are homeless or refugees in the ‘Cardboard Christmas’, we had a chance to say thank you for the people in our lives, to remember those who have given their lives to protect our peace. Other stations gave us the chance to make a wish for the world and give the world a gift this Christmas, to forgive ourselves and others’ and also the opportunity to reflect on personal loss in the ‘Empty Chair’ where we could think about those no longer in our lives. Pupils understand that Prayspace is a safe and supportive space in which to feel sad but it is also a space for us to have hope .

The spiritual, moral and social development of all our pupils is deepened by Prayspace in a Christian or a non-religious context and we are already looking forward to next year’s visit.
