Welcome to William Howard School, where we strive every day to challenge our students and staff to live by the school's core values: “Respect, Responsibility, Resilience”. We have a clear expectation that every student will strive to be the best that they can be in all that they do.  This extends to all within the school community and you will find that staff and students work together to achieve the very best outcomes.
