Meet the Headteacher

Hi, I’m Deborah Howard, Headteacher at Oswald Road Primary School.

I’ve been at Oswald Road since September 2012, becoming the permanent Headteacher in May 2013. Oswald Road is a lovely school with fantastic children, staff and families. The staff work incredibly hard on a daily basis, all wanting the same thing…the very best for the children.


Before coming to Oswald Road, I spent 9 years at a primary school in Withington as a class teacher, becoming Deputy Head from 2005. In 2010, I moved to a school in Wythenshawe where I worked as a class teacher and Deputy Head. My background is teaching Upper Key Stage 2 and I still have daily teaching slots as I feel it’s so important to keep these skills. More recently I have been teaching in Year 2 and I have thoroughly enjoyed this!


Oswald Road is a happy and caring place. We pride ourself on our strong pastoral care and it is an absolute pleasure and privilege to lead this wonderful school.
