Join Us Under The Howell’s Umbrella!

For over 157 years we have pioneered pathways for girls to take their place in the world. In the 19th century, Howell's School, Llandaff redefined girls’ education in Wales and our reputation for excellence still endures. 

As a GDST School we work hard to ensure that our fees remain as affordable as possible. This means that, although the fees cover the running expenses of the School, they cannot always cover the cost of the additional projects that can make a real difference to the lives of each of our students.

Our goal is for our students to succeed as never before; we are ambitious for them collectively and individually. To meet these needs we have a long term fundraising plan: Howell's Umbrella Giving (HUG).

Our plans for the next year include the maintenance and growth of the bursary fund, the restoration of the Great Hall and the creation of an all-weather 3G Astro sports pitch.

Capital Campaigns

Sports Complex

As we are entering the second and final phase of our 3G and Sports Pavilion fundraising campaign, the excitement is building. The Howell’s community has fully embraced the Pitch In fundraising initiative for which we are extremely grateful. 

Restoration of the Great Hall

The magnificent Great Hall, with its vaulted ceilings, wood panelling and beautiful J M Staniforth Shakespearean murals, is very much at the heart of Howell’s. With over a century of wear and tear, this stunning space is starting to show its age and is in need of a complete restoration to return it to its former glory.


We are committed to offering places to students from all backgrounds, as well as those already in school whose families may no longer be able to meet the fees. We are determined to increase the number of bursary places we offer and can only do this with your help.  Click here for more information.

Corporate Partnerships

At Howell’s we are passionate about building our calendar of events to engage with our local community. In order to reach a wider section of the community we have developed our Corporate Partnerships Programme, a scheme designed to help local businesses fulfil their corporate social responsibilities through a partnership with Howell’s. The project develops annual events which aim to match the needs of the company for the sponsorship sum of between £500 and £3000. The project enables local businesses to help a wide community of children under the safe direction of our well-established and highly regarded school. We currently have several partnerships including those with the English Speaking Union and with HSBC.

We would love to hear from any businesses interested in supporting our Corporate Partnerships Programme so please contact Vanessa Yilmaz, Director of Development, on 029 2026 1839 or email for more information.
