**About the School:**
Howell's School, Llandaff, is one of the oldest girls' school in Wales, having opened in August 1860. Since then, it has steadily expanded, both in terms of student numbers and physical size, though it is still located on its original large site and has the benefit of extensive grounds. The school now caters for girls from the age of 3 to 16 and girls and boys 16-18. Since 1980 it has been a member of the Girls' Day School Trust, the largest organisation of independent schools in the UK. Its 26 member schools all have a reputation for consistently high academic standards, superb pastoral support and enviable extra-curricular programmes. In 2005, Howell's opened its doors to boys with the establishment of the co-educational College for A Level students. The facilities inside the Victorian building and its more modern extensions are first-class and the opportunities for extracurricular activities, teamwork and confidence-building numerous. Academically, the school provides great added value, with results at both GCSE and A Level regularly greatly exceeding expectations.
Interviews will take place shortly after the closing date.
