The Howard School | Sixth Form Prospectus

Welcome to

The Howard School It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to The Howard School Sixth Form. As you approach the end of Year 11 you arrive at a key point in your education, and need to plan carefully for your future. This document provides you with advice and information about what we can offer you in the next phase of your education at The Howard School. Our most recent Ofsted visit confirmed that we are a very good school and that the quality of education available to the sixth form is very good. Inspectors specifically noted that “sixth form students achieve well in academic and vocational courses, making good progress across a variety of subject areas by the end of Year 13”, and also that “leaders help post-16 students to develop their independence and play a greater role in the life of the school.” Our results in the Sixth Form, as at GCSE, have continued to improve year on year to ensure that the progress our students make is substantial. We offer excellent teaching across all subject areas to ensure this happens. In addition, our new £5million Science and Technology building (opening November 2021) is the first stage in ensuring our facilities better match the quality of teaching in the school. The Sixth Form represents a traditional stage that links education at school to the next phase of your life. Our aim is to provide the opportunities and environment which will enable every one of you to reach your academic potential and gain the skills which will enable you to proceed to higher education or employment and lead fulfilled, successful lives. In choosing to join our Sixth Form, you should be prepared to assume a greater responsibility for your own learning and provide a positive example for younger students. We will support you in doing this. Your choice of Sixth Form is an important one: the decision you make now isn’t just about the next few years, it’s about the rest of your life. In choosing The Howard School, you choose the things that are important for your future: committed teaching staff, good facilities, and a strong academic and personal development programme. We want to embody the virtues that The Howard School stands for: respect, pride, ambition, resilience and integrity.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form community.

Mr J Johal Head of School
