About Us

Welcome to Howden School.

Howden is a small 11-16 school serving its community in the East Riding, with over 700 students on roll. As part of The Consortium Academy Trust, we are ambitious about the future - creating learning environments and excellence in teaching and learning that provide our children and young people with the best chance at a successful future.

At Howden we set and maintain high standards and expectations in terms of teaching, aspirations, behaviour and appearance. We believe that all young people have a right to a high quality educational experience, which provides the appropriate conditions for learning and helps them to achieve their full potential. We encourage our students to take responsibility for their learning and aim to provide opportunities for them to contribute towards the decision-making process through Student Voice.

It is our mission that everyone connected with the school works to be the best versions of themselves that they can be. For us though, school life is not about statistics. It is our core belief that as a school we should be striving to help each child to achieve their potential, preparing them to become good citizens and providing them with a safe, supportive learning environment where they are happy and can thrive.

The school is fortunate in having an excellent team of staff, both teaching and support, and a great amount of time is given for extra-curricular activities. These activities support our strong pastoral system which helps to further develop our core values.

"We hope that this website will give you a flavour of what we are about as a school. If you require further information about Howden School please contact the school and we will be happy to arrange a visit or answer any questions you may have."
