Book of Remembrance of
Keith Howard, Headmaster of Queen Mary's Grammar School 1979-1995
Keith Howard is sadly missed by the Queen Mary’s Grammar School community, past and present.
Mr Howard was the 34th Headmaster of Queen Mary’s Grammar School having been appointed to the post in 1979. His attention to detail was exceptional and his integrity unquestionable. He upheld the highest standards and he fiercly defended the notion of a grammar school education, maintaing a well-run and aspirational School. Mr Howard was involved in all aspects of life at the School: he attended all the meetings of the QMA, sang in the choir and lent his considerable knowledge on the games field. Approachable to colleagues, parents and pupils he gave generously of his time and never failed in his thanks to others for doing their part. Following his retirement in 1995 he continued in his support for the School and maintained his link by attending events for as long as he was able to do so.
