Welcome to our School Website

Welcome to Howden Junior School in the historic market town of Howden. Our school ethos is “caring and sharing” and this is the heart to our school. At our school you will find a community of people – pupils, staff, governors and parents who are all supportive of each other. Our children find themselves in a busy and enthusiastic learning environment where there is always much to do, see and learn. Please have a good look round our website to find examples of the curriculum at Howden Junior School.
