At How Wood we work as a team to provide children with learning experiences that they find exciting and yet challenging.


We aim to provide opportunities that inspire and motivate children to take pride in every aspect of school life. We set high standards for all our children so that they develop a love of learning that extends beyond the school and shapes their future life positively.  

At How Wood we provide a caring and supportive environment along with high learning expectations. We appreciate that everyone is an individual and the staff team work hard to create an environment where all children can make excellent progress, not only in their academic life, but in their personal, social and emotional development as well. We expect our children to be accepting of others, to make good moral choices and be active members of the school and wider community. Success and effort is celebrated and acknowledge, so that everyone takes pride in what they achieve.


We value the contribution that parents make to their children’s learning and the school. We constantly work to develop our school and we welcome any helpful contributions from parents and children. All staff and governors are committed to the school and we look forward to working with all children and parents to ensure we work as a team to achieve the very best we can.


Our vision for How Wood is to strive towards providing excellent care, guidance and support alongside achieving high academic standards.

You are welcome to visit the school at any time, by prior arrangement, and I look forward to meeting you and your family.
