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.


Fundraising throughout the 2015/2016 academic year reached £1725.06.  This money went towards financially subsidising school trips and activities which might otherwise be unaffordable for families.

In 2015/16 Friends of Howes supported trips to:

  • Safeside
  • Worcester Medical Museums
  • Coventry Transport Musem
  • Herbert Art Gallery
  • Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Warwick Arts Centre to see the Gruffalo’s Child

The Committee


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

Our current committee consists of:

Joint Chairs: Shona Orchard & Amanda Sanderson
Joint Vice-Chair: Lorraine Branski & Laura Grant
Secretary: Anita White
Treasurer: Clare Wheatley
