Dear Prospective New Families,

We very much appreciate you considering Howley as the school for your little ones.

We know what a difficult decision it can be, especially under the current circumstances. We pride ourselves on being a caring school, putting the well-being of our school community at the very top of our priorities. It is with the safety of our children, staff and families in mind that I have taken the very difficult decision not to offer school tours to prospective parents this year.

I appreciate this will make your decision even more challenging. We are very disappointed not to be able to offer you this opportunity. Under normal circumstances our children and staff like nothing more than showing our prospective families around Howley. We are all very proud of our school!

I know many of you will have been researching a variety of schools, reading up on them and talking to others who have children who attend. We have added a virtual tour of the school below, where you can have a look at the facilities we have to offer. You can also read what our year 6 children want you to know about their school. If you would like to receive a paper copy of our prospectus then please contact us on

There is no real substitute for visiting schools, feeling and hearing the ‘buzz’ and seeing the happy, hard-working children and staff team. However, if you would like to talk to a member of the senior leadership team to find out more about what Howley has to offer, then please don’t hesitate to contact us either by email or call school on 01384 818395 and we can arrange a mutually convenient time for a phone call. We really would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time, please know that we are here to help in any way we possibly can.

Best Wishes

Miss Lewis
