Howitt Primary Community School

Welcome to the Howitt Primary website. I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief introduction to the school, its values and aims.

Howitt is a larger than average primary school, with approximately 400 pupils. We are lucky to have our own purpose built Nursery, so that children can learn here from an early age. In the main school, there are 2 classes for each year group and we are well supported by our dedicated team of Teachers and Teaching Assistants who help each child to get the most out of learning.

Helping hands

Well done to 2 of our children at Howitt who at the weekend went to the help of a man who had collapsed in Heanor.  The 2 boys were very calm and phoned for an ambulance to come and waited with him while the ambulance came.  

Mr Hawkins’ 100 mile bike ride

A big congratulations to Mr Hawkins who managed to raise £500 on his bike mile.  The money raised will be spent on playground equipment.
