The Howard School
The Howard School was established in 1975 by amalgamating Rainham Boys Secondary School and Gillingham Boys Grammar School to form a bi-lateral school. A bi-lateral school is one where admission to the grammar school section is by 11 plus selection and admission to the high school section is non-selective.
The School was named after Dorothy Howard who played a major part in the local community.
We aim to create a close-knit family of Good and Outstanding schools through partnership, challenge, accountability and support within a cooperative framework.
We are committed to enhancing the life chances of young people by improving their educational achievement.
Schools within the Trust will retain their unique and individual character.
We strive for excellence and aim to bring about transformational change where necessary in schools.
We are truly inclusive and aim to establish the highest expectations for young people and all those who work with them.
