Additional support

At the Howard School we realise that for our students to achieve it is vital we give them all the support, guidance and advice they need. We also believe it is important that the students have a voice in what goes on in the school. This is done through our School Council and team of Form Captains.

Every year group has Form Tutors, Head of Year and a Deputy Head of Year to look after the pastoral needs of students. This is supported by our Student Services Centre, Inclusion department, school counsellor and careers staff.
