"Together Everyone Achieves More"


We are in the top 5% of schools nationally for Reading Progress

and in the top 10% of schools nationally for Maths Progress!

Our school motto is Together Everyone Achieves More. I personally feel that this summarises our school, one which is at the ‘heart’ of the local community. A vibrant learning hub where everyone is welcomed and supported. A school where children are instilled with a life long love of learning.

The Howard Junior School (Academy) is proud of all the wonderful day to day achievements that our pupils make. Each one is celebrated. I do hope if you visit our school, you can see by the children’s smiles and enjoyment of their academic pursuits, what a great school Howard Junior School is.

We are firmly committed to equality for all and an ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda.

Our last OFSTED report rated the school as GOOD, I do hope you will kindly take the time to read it.

Many thanks,

Mr Gregory L. Hill
