Howell’s Junior School is a vibrant, diverse, energetic community of girls aged between three and eleven. We pride ourselves on our warm and supportive atmosphere, in which every child is valued and nurtured. As a school we place a tremendous emphasis on developing the self-identity, self-esteem and self-confidence of every girl. We are committed to developing not only their academic abilities, but also their personal and social skills.
Head of Junior School/Deputy Principal
Howell's Junior School provides a first class education, in a rich and stimulating environment, which inspires our girls, captures their imaginations, arouses their enthusiasm and equips them for life in and out of the classroom. Through nurturing and caring for every individual, we instill confidence and self-belief in every girl. It is our aim that every girl should fulfil her true potential and become confident, tenacious and thoughtful, with a disposition for learning and success that will last her a lifetime.
A love of knowledge
We seek to foster a love of knowledge with the ability to question, debate, analyse and make informed judgements.
We provide a broad range of experiences and opportunities, to encourage creativity and inquisitive thought. Girls are encouraged to learn independently and to recognise that learning does not stop at the lesson bell or upon leaving the classroom but that each moment of their day represents an opportunity to learn and to understand.
As well as bringing traditional subjects to life, our Creative Curriculum provides a broad range of additional experiences and opportunities, designed to encourage creativity and inquisitive thought, build initiative, organisation and problem-solving skills, as well as foster the ability to communicate effectively.
Performance plays a significant role in the life of Howell’s School. From the moment they join us, even our youngest girls have the opportunity to share in a wide range of artistic, dramatic and musical productions.
There are many optional, extra-curricular clubs and activities to appeal to all interests and developing talents. Our young musicians are well-catered for, with a Junior Orchestra, choirs, bands and ensembles. There are various sports clubs, including football, tennis, gymnastics and ballet; our junior journalists enjoy writing and editing in Newspaper Club; Gardening Club and Forest School both get the girls exploring the expansive school grounds; and for budding linguists there are after-school clubs in French, German, Welsh, Mandarin and Spanish.

The girls also enjoy Welsh lessons as part of the weekly timetable and the whole curriculum has Welsh flavours to celebrate the history and culture of Wales.
