Howick College provides our young learners with the skills and knowledge to enable them to be the best they can be. We set high standards and have high expectations of our students. In conjunction with our teaching programmes, our core values of courtesy, commitment, curiosity and courage underpin our school culture and provide guiding principles for our students. This is evident in the high standards of conduct and self-efficacy amongst our students. Consequently, we enjoy high standards of student conduct and behaviour throughout our learning community.

As principal, I am committed to a student-centred approach to education. It is essential that the college is dynamic and innovative and continues to deliver an educational programme that is relevant in a rapidly changing society. Most importantly, our college provides a safe environment where all students feel valued and supported and share a sense of belonging.

I am proud to be the fourth principal of this outstanding school. It is a happy and caring place where students are encouraged to reach their full potential in all aspects of life.


I warmly welcome you to our Howick College community.

Mr Dale Burden
