 At Blessed William Howard we offer a very special education centred around first class pastoral care. Our school is growing in popularity; in fact, we have had waiting lists in the past two years for places in Year 7. We are one of the very few schools who continued to teach children via online lessons throughout lockdown. Our students continued to learn from home and our teachers continued to teach and mark their work from home.

I recognise, as the Principal and as a father of two children, the importance that children and their parents place on the transition from primary to secondary school. I do not want your child to miss out on a first-class education at Blessed William Howard.
