About Us

‘A caring school, built on Christian values, where every child is a happy, confident and successful learner.’

A welcome message from our Headteacher:

Welcome to Howbridge Church of England Junior School. This website provides information on the school, our aims and values, our curriculum and the range of activities and experiences that we offer our children.

As a Church of England School our Christian Distinctiveness is very important to us. We aim to serve our community by providing education of the highest possible quality within the context and ethos of Christian belief. While we actively promote Christian Values such as truthfulness, compassion and forgiveness, we respect the beliefs of other faiths and those of no faith. Our aim is to be a safe place of distinctive excellence where all are valued as individuals and as God’s children.

At Howbridge Junior we pride ourselves on supporting and challenging all of our children to achieve their very best through providing a happy and friendly atmosphere where your child will make friends, develop in confidence and learn new skills in a safe and stimulating environment.

We believe that with high expectations and hard work, our children can achieve almost anything.  Alongside academic work, we value developing the whole child and place great emphasis on fun educational experiences, a huge range of sporting opportunities, fantastic annual productions and heart warming charity work. All of our children, without exception, are encouraged and expected to work hard and to take pride in achieving high standards in everything they do.

I look forward to working in partnership with you as we help your children make the very best progress possible in their learning and become the very best they can be.

Mr S Wade,

A welcome message from our Chair of Governors:


On behalf of the Local Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to our website which I am sure you will find informative.

The Local Governing Body at Howbridge Church of England Junior School (Academy) is made up of governors who are parents, teachers and members of the local community. The role of the Local Governing Body is to ensure the smooth running of the school, that resources are used efficiently and to provide a supportive challenge to Mr Wade and his team. We are determined to do this to make certain that each child receives the quality of education that he or she deserves. The governors all give their time as volunteers and take their role seriously; having special responsibilities and are actively committed to the school.

I know that Mr Wade and his staff are dedicated, enthusiastic and approachable. They are committed to providing the children with the best possible education in a safe and caring environment, as they strive to seek even greater improvements.

The school is very much committed to maintaining its Christian ethos and values. If you have any feedback, comments or concerns that you would like to discuss, I can always be contacted through the school.

Mrs Rosemary Lovatt, Chair of Governors
