The Howard of Effingham is an outstanding school. It offers maximum opportunities for young people to develop academically and socially in an environment that is stimulating, caring and supportive. The school sets high standards that instil values which enable young people to develop into confident and responsible young adults.
The Howard has a well deserved reputation for academic excellence. Each year our GCSE results have placed us among the top comprehensive schools in Surrey. There is a natural progression into the Sixth Form where the courses on offer include both traditional and vocational A Levels, and our successes here enable the vast majority of our students who apply to University to secure one of their chosen places, including Oxbridge.
The pastoral organisation of The Howard ensures a sharp focus on the well-being and academic progress of the students. High standards of behaviour based on respect for each other and the school environment are paramount and the House system helps to foster a real spirit of community and co-operation. In addition, an excellent range of extra-curricular activities, trips and leadership opportunities is available for our students making The Howard a vibrant community in which all are encouraged to develop their talents to the full.
The Howard is a traditional school with a passion for innovation. We are committed to developing well-rounded individuals with a thirst for life-long learning. It is our ambition that every child will achieve their very best and look back on their time at The Howard with fond memories and a real sense of achievement.
We all share the same goal at The Howard, to bring out the best in our young people. As a result, students achieve highly and make very good progress. Our teaching staff are highly qualified and all are graduates or teachers with specialist qualifications in their respective subject areas. The Headteacher is supported by a team of senior leaders and curriculum areas are led by Heads of Faculty and Subject Leaders. Year Leaders and Year Managers lead the year teams and are responsible for students’ pastoral care. The school is also very well-supported by highly capable and professional support staff in both student-facing and administration roles. Staff development is an important and ongoing priority, and significant investment is put into staff training.
The Howard’s approach is both forward looking and traditional, offering a proven high quality education. We provide opportunities for students of all abilities to achieve high standards within a caring atmosphere that enables them to develop socially and academically. We work hard to engender in all students self-esteem, confidence and consideration for others through their secondary education. We set high standards for behaviour, promoting traditional values that are important for lifelong achievement. We believe that academic attainment flourishes in this atmosphere enabling students to develop into confident and well-rounded young adults.
