The Howard School is a respected school which provides unmatched opportunities for students in academic, personal, sporting, cultural and social aspects of life.

Key Information about our School:


Our academic results are outstanding.  In three out of the last four years we have been the best performing non-selective school in Medway (5A* - C grades including English and Maths at GCSE). 

We are the best performing non-selective boys’ school in Kent and Medway and have been since 2009.  2013 has seen the school improve yet again with an incredible 95% of students achieving five or more good (grade C and above) GCSE grades. 

An impressive 62% of our students achieved five or more 5A* - C grades including English and Maths.  50 students achieved the English Baccalaureate, more than any other non-selective school in Medway. 

A-level results in 2013 were better than those achieved in some local grammar schools.

We intend to continue to raise standards and it is vital that students, parents/carers, staff, governors and the Local Authority work together to realise this aim.

We are a good school (Ofsted November 2013).

The Howard School will now be working closely with Abel & Cole on their scheme, Farmer’s Choice. Monday 11 November 2013 saw the launch day of this scheme within the school. The Farmer’s Choice schemes will allow parents/carers and the local community to purchase organic local produce via the school. You will be able to purchase a mixed variety of fruits and vegetables every week!

All orders will need to be submitted before midnight on every Tuesday; your order will then be available for collection from the school from 15:15 till 16.00 in Main Reception, every Thursday.
All profits made via the scheme will be funding our 20 in 2020 project.

This project will help to offer our students the opportunity of discussing and analysing the impact of our global environmental issues on our food and water resources via creating and developing a vegetable and fruit garden, providing cooking lessons and discussing with our partner countries our ideas about sustainability. If you wish to find out more information about 20 in 2020, you can visit http://www.momentumworld.org/2020-education or you may contact The Head Ambassador or Mrs Johal
