Why Howell's School?

Howell’s School, Llandaff has been at the forefront of girls’ education since 1860.

Our school was founded on a pioneering approach to educating girls, and our future aims are no less ambitious.

At Howell’s, we are passionate about the futures of our girls. While their academic achievements are important, these must go hand-in-hand with co-curricular activities that interest and challenge them, a community that supports them, and the opportunities to pursue their passions and learn from their failures.

By nurturing well-rounded and self-confident girls, we help them to develop the skills they need to manage the choices and opportunities ahead of them, inspired and prepared to make their mark on the world.

If you like asking WHY, WHAT and HOW, then this is the place to consider the answers.


Why Girls Only?

Our approach to education has always been to put girls first.

Our girls thrive in a single-sex environment. Girls mature into young adults in a culture free from gender bias or social pressure from boys, encouraging them to believe that nothing is beyond their reach or consideration. The success of this approach is demonstrated not only in their consistently outstanding exam results and extensive co-curricular achievements, but through the well-rounded and inspirational women they become. The single-sex education available at Howell’s provides the motivation, self-belief and resilience for our girls to feel confident about their abilities; they are more assertive and willing to take risks, ask questions and make mistakes.

For more guidance on girls’ single-sex education, please see information from the Girls Schools Association (GSA) which highlights a number of benefits, such as the freedom from stereotypes, leadership opportunities and academic excellence.

Howell's School provides tremendous "value-added" in terms of public examination results, which are consistently higher than predicted in independent assessments.
