To help achieve this, each academic year pupils at Howitt complete in many extra-curricular competitions as part of the Amber Valley School Sport Partnership (AVSSP), including dodgeball, handball, basketball, football and cross country.
Some of our impressive recent achievements include:
- 8 of our amazing KS1 children took part in a football competition at Aldercar High School.
- 7 year 3 and 4 pupils came first in the dodgeball competition, winning every single match with an amazing 27 points!
