Howell’s celebrates an exceptional Estyn Report

02 May 2024

Following our most recent inspection, Howell’s received an exceptional report from Estyn, recognising the outstanding features of our school. Here are a few highlights of the report:

Howell’s School is an extremely happy school community built upon a culture of kindness and the humble pursuit of excellence. Collectively, senior leaders, governors and staff have fostered an environment which values learning, opportunity and growth.

Pupils throughout the school demonstrate strong active listening skills, both in and out of the classroom. They are attentive, generous, and encouraging to their teachers and peers, using their skills to good effect to develop conversations deepen and discussions.

Teachers are passionate and committed, and know their pupils extremely well. Trusting, positive and supportive relationships are a hallmark of the school. Teachers are highly knowledgeable and use their expertise to build relevant links across the curriculum.

Pupils have high levels of trust in the staff and believe strongly that they will always do their best for them. They feel well supported and appreciate the advice and guidance the staff offer them. This builds pupils’ confidence, their sense of self, and supports them become independent learners and thinkers.
