About William Howard School
William Howard School is an academy, situated in the town of Brampton and serving a large catchment area in east Cumbria. It is an innovative and forward-thinking school. We are passionate about education and aim to provide an exciting and engaging learning environment where students are inspired, enthused and equipped for the future.
We are a high performing school and are very proud of our exam results at both GCSE and A ‘Level. Whilst the focus at William Howard is upon high achievement and attainment, we also work hard to ensure our students become fully rounded individuals, who can make contributions at all levels of society.
Our rich and varied extra-curricular programme offers children the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities and experiences whilst at William Howard. Our diverse programme includes an impressive array of sporting clubs and competitions, musical events, an annual whole school ‘west end’ production, Duke of Edinburgh Award and trips and residential visits.
We have strong international links which are given a high priority within school, with the aim of encouraging students to become global citizens and increasing their awareness of different cultures. Our school house system reinforces this ethos, with the Houses named after Tanzanian trees. Our long-standing exchange programme with Uru Secondary School in Tanzania has been running for twenty-five years and continues to be a great asset to both the Uru and Brampton communities.
As a school, we are very proud of our achievements, our examination success, the diversity of our extra-curricular programme and our community involvement.
