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, extending into our Co-Ed College.

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 and Digital Discovery and Learning.

Learning in a virtual world

Digital skills are required in all that we do, from interacting with our devices to learning a new language. At Howell’s we embrace these skills and our new Digital Discovery and Learning Labs embrace this. Students can immerse themselves in presenting digital literature, creating original animations and developing their use of modern languages. Interaction with devices is crucial to this and we encourage a confidence to keep discovering new technologies.

Virtual reality (VR) is an area of development that fascinates students and currently one that they can only enjoy outside school. Gaming, theme parks, museums and other places of interest all embrace VR to give an immersive experience. Whether you are building your own city, riding a virtual roller coaster or treading carefully through the rainforest this technology gives you a real life experience of this.

The Digital Learning team in both the Prep and Senior School currently promotes all aspects of digital learning and promote VR in a demonstrative way. We would be delighted to have VR kit available to complement our Digital Discovery Lab and equip students with the ability to take part in virtual tours and potentially create their own. Imagine an immersive sporting or music experience, created by our very own digital creators.

With a Google Expeditions VR class kit, students from Years 3 to 11 will be able to take part in VR experiences, including access to the Google 3D Library. Google Expeditions is an immersive education app that allows teachers and students to explore the world through over 1000 VR and 100 augmented-reality (AR) tours. You can swim with sharks, visit outer space, and more without leaving the classroom. We know how excited our students would be by having this technology to hand and the ability to create their own immersive experiences


It is so important that the kind of education that Howell’s School, Llandaff offers is not dependent on money. Knowledge is freely available to everyone, so the chance to develop that knowledge, to stretch your mind, to question and explore, should also be open to anyone.

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.

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 that with the English-Speaking Union.

We would love to hear from any businesses interested in supporting our Corporate Partnerships Programme so please contact Hannah Roberts, Development and Marketing Officer, on 029 2026 1825 or email for more information.
