School Lettings

Howell’s School is proud of its exceptional modern educational facilities in buildings of character and as part of our links to the local area, we make our superb facilities available to the community for such events as:

  • Weddings
  • Conferences/meetings
  • Receptions

We fully recognise our responsibilities under charity law and seek opportunities to provide a wider public benefit where this is possible. Children from neighbouring schools are regularly welcomed in to join our students for many exciting events throughout the year.

Our facilities are also used during the school holidays by King's Sports camps and at weekends by The Saturday Circle (Children’s Language Group), Speech and Drama and The Suzuki Piano School.

If you would like to enquire about availability please contact Frances Keeping, our lettings co-ordinator on 02920 261875 or email Frances.Keeping@how.gdst.net. We offer very competitive rates for lettings.
