How can you support yourself?

Education is exceptionally important. Education enables all peoples to improve their life chances. At Howard House School you have the opportunity to discover and harness your potential. ‘Sleuth’ and ‘GCSEpods’ are important tools you can use to support yourself in achieving your potential at Howard House School. See below a brief explanation on both these tools:


The School Software Company is a team of education leaders and software professionals responsible for the design, development and implementation of Sleuth, a software tracking system now used by thousands of leaders and staff in hundreds of education and care settings.


GCSEpod will enable you to learn independently using a variety of electronic devices, such as:

  • Desktop
  • Laptop
  • Tablet
  • Mobile Phone

It is our hope this excellent resource will help you learn outside the classroom – this will become the way we deliver homework to you. Recent events show us that you will at times have to learn independently with very little warning. I personally feel this resource will help both the school and you work together to continue learning.

In order to access the resource, you will need access to the internet and one of the electronic devices listed above. They can also download a free of charge app that will make entry to the website quicker and more convenient to use on their mobile phones/devices. The school will also be able to track how often they use GCSEpod.
