King’s Lynn school celebrates new academy status

Howard Junior School in Gaywood is celebrating its new status as a stand-alone academy.

Headteacher Greg Hill said: “To gain this status we demonstrated excellent SATs results, sustained school improvement, sound financial management and a good/outstanding Ofsted.

“In the future, we wish to consider becoming an academy trust and sponsoring other schools.

“We aim to champion digital learning to ensure our pupils and future schools that work with us will get the very best preparation for high demand skills, leading to the very top jobs.”

The school’s grand opening and new uniform will be unveiled when pupils return after the Christmas holidays on Tuesday, January 6.

Any school interested in working with Howard Junior in future should contact the school on 01553 774511.
