"Together Everyone Achieves More"


We are AMAZING writers!

Howard Junior School has the second highest
Writing Progress score in England!
(Out of 20840 schools!)

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.

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 vision is to empower students to accelerate and personalise their learning by enabling them to effectively engage and collaborate with their peers, their community and the real world through the use of technology.

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
