Pitch In

£55,000 Raised So Far!

As we are entering the final phase of our 3G and Sports Pavilion fundraising campaign, the excitement is building! The Howell’s community has fully embraced this fundraising initiative for which we are extremely grateful. From March 2017 we need your continued support to keep the momentum going in order for our target to be reached.

Please contact vanessa.yilmaz@how.gdst.net for naming opportunities. 

Our Exciting Ambition

We are determined to improve the sporting offer for our students. Our current facilities are inadequate and this is something we are determined to rectify. Our goal is to increase significantly sporting opportunities for children and young people. To achieve this, we will be:

  • Installing a new all-weather 3G Astroturf – the best in the area!

  • Making significant improvements to our grass playing fields

  • Building a sports pavilion which will include state of the art changing facilities, showers and a meeting room for up to 70 people.

 The new facilities will have a significant impact on the provision of Sport at Howell’s. It will enable us to increase the number of sports on offer, increase the number of fixtures and help us to better nurture sporting talent.
