Friends of Howes

Welcome to the Friends of Howes Webpage

Friends of Howes is an association bringing together parents, teachers, staff and the Howes wider community to raise money and to support the school. It provides an opportunity for the school’s community to work together towards our common goals of enhancing the students’ educational experiences.


All fundraising  money goes towards financially subsidising school trips and activities which might otherwise be unaffordable for families.

Recently Friends of Howes have supported:

  • Trips to The Seaside
  • Trips to Beaumanor Hall,
  • Trips to The Farm
  • Trips to the theatre
  • School Books
  • …much, much more

The Committee

Our current committee consists of:

Chair: Shona Orchard
Vice-Chair: Laura Grant

Other Team Members: Demi Williams, Emma Parkinson, Sarah Meadows


We meet approximately once a month and everyone is welcome to come along and share ideas.
