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 have been consistently outstanding for the  last 5 years.  In three out of the last five 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.  2014 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 59% of our students achieved five or more 5A* - C grades including English and Maths.  More than 50 students achieved the English Baccalaureate, more than any other non-selective school in Medway.

A-level results in 2014 were better than those achieved in some local grammar schools and our best ever.

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).
