Thank you for your interest in The Howard School at what I think is a very exciting time to be part of the school’s community. As part of The Howard Academy Trust, we are committed to a shared moral purpose; to make a positive difference to the lives of the young people in our community.
The Howard School is a highly inclusive school community where every individual matters. High levels of discipline ensure everyone is expected to work hard and make a positive contribution to the learning environment. The school has been recognised as a Rights Respecting School at Gold Level by UNICEF, the only secondary school in Kent or Medway to receive such an award.
"Pupils enjoy school and feel valued. The school is inclusive with a real sense of community. Relationships between pupils, and between pupils and staff, are a real strength."

Another busy term at The Howard as this week years 9 to 13 have all taken part in their Christmas inspired 'Name That Tune!' with years 7 and 8 taking part next week ahead of our Big Christmas Quiz on the final day of term!
On Thursday 7 th December 36 year 8 students were invited to participate in an RE escape room inspired event. It was an opportunity for students to work collaboratively to grapple with some challenging puzzles and questions. They debated and discussed some classic ethical issues and scenarios as well as some big philosophical questions, including "What is the soul? How do we know what is real? How can we define truth? And does morality matter?" The activities were based around some thought experiments and challenging thinkers such as Plato, Plutarch and Schrödinger. Students loved the depth of the questioning and were supported by some A level Philosophy and Ethics students who encouraged them to think more deeply about language, definition and the influence of these concepts on themselves and others in society. Team RE are so proud of the depth of discussion and look forward to seeing the seeds to today's discussions develop.
