Holmleigh Park High School

Pam Howes

 

It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Ms Howes passed away yesterday evening. 

Pam Howes joined the school in 2000 and has been a rock at the foundation of our community ever since. She was well-respected as a Maths teacher, but it’s perhaps for her incredible pastoral care that she will be best remembered. As Head of Westgate House, she has worked with thousands of pupils, who will remember fondly her cheerful optimism, her limitless kindness, and her unfailing ability to see the good in everyone.

There are no words to express how badly we will miss her.

We have opened a Book of Condolences for our Holmleigh Park family to sign below. In time, we will write to you again with details of how we intend to remember Pam as a school. 

For now, we ask that you respect Ms Howes' family’s wish for privacy, particularly in these uncertain times.

Our thoughts and prayers at HP are with Pam’s family - especially her two sons, who meant the world to her - and with you and your families.

    I'm deeply saddened to hear the news. Pam was an amazing person. Extremely kind, funny and caring. Was loved by teachers and students alike. I have thoroughly enjoyed working close with her over the last two years and our funny emails to one another. Pam had lots of wonderful words of wisdom when I started my pastoral journey at HP and I will never forget how much she helped me. She truly is an inspiration. My thoughts go to her family at such a difficult time xx
  • Craig Buckenham 6 months ago
    I count myself lucky to have been able to call Pam a friend. Possibly of the kindest and most caring person I have ever known. Never a bad word to say about anyone and always looking for the good in anyone she met. Always happy to help, smiling and cheerful whatever the circumstances, the ray of sunshine on a gloomy day. She will remain long in the hearts of all of us who had the privilege of knowing her.

    This is definitely not what I thought I would be doing today. Such sad news and so unexpected. You will always be a huge part of the school, we all have such fond memories of you and your antics. I loved supporting in your lessons because you always went out of your way for the children. You’re wicked sense of humour will be sorely missed. My sincerest condolences to your family at this devastating time. RIP Pam

  • Tiffany Furleger 6 months ago
    It is a difficult day for the school community hearing the news about Pam. She was popular, genuine and an excellent teacher. I remember, at a time before I knew her better, she came to school with a bouquet of flowers for me because she knew I’d had a bad day the day before and this really shows the kind and supportive nature she had. My thought are with her family. RIP Pam x
  • John Kavanagh 6 months ago
    Pam was always supportive and made time to ask me how I was, no matter how her day was going. She was funny, kind and always positive. I really enjoyed my time sharing a tutor group with her and I know the students will miss her dearly. I just want to thank her for all the positive memories. My thoughts are with her family at this difficult time.
  • Amanda Screen 6 months ago
    Pam was a true friend from the moment I walked into Beaufort she made me laugh, whether it be just her fabulous sense of humour or her passing comments in the corridors . She is and will be always remembered in school as the mummy of the department, no matter what was going on she would listen and not make judgement. I hope wherever you are there is a good glass of wine. Rest in Peace x
  • Kinza Barrett 6 months ago
    Pam was an integral part of our Maths department. A fantastic teacher who took pride in everything she did, her students knew she cared and she went above and beyond for them. Pam overflowed with positivity, kindness and laughter, she went out of her way to look out for all of us in the team. Her absence will be keenly felt, but her legacy will live on. My prayers are with her two sons, she talked about you both with such joy and love and always a huge smile, I am deeply sorry for your loss xx
  • Sarah Tomlin 6 months ago
    Pam always had a smile for everyone and was so giving of her time. We would always know when Comic Relief or Children in Need was coming up because we would receive an email asking for donations for the raffle. Pam's approach to this, that tickets didn't cost much to enable all pupils to take part, summed up her kindness and generous spirit. The joy Pam created in school will be missed. Rest in Peace.
  • Gail Wayman 6 months ago
    Pam you were always such a positive presence around the school - you always thought of others first and you could always be counted on to dress up for charity! We were always bumping into each other outside of school in strange places - even in Cornwall! You touched the lives of a lot of people who will miss you dearly. My thoughts are with your family at this difficult time x
  • Jayne Sinden 6 months ago
    A beautiful soul, who will be missed by so many. Always there with a smile on your face and happy to help or offer guidance. My thoughts are with your family. Rest in peace. Xx
  • Tommy O'Gallagher 6 months ago
    Pam, you were a radiator. You gave out warmth, kindness and generosity, and everyone wanted to be around you. You never had a bad word to say about anyone and I never heard a bad word said about you. Very few special people achieve this. You will be sorely missed.
  • Danielle 6 months ago

  • Greg Masters 6 months ago
    My deepest condolences to Pam's family. My thoughts are very much with you. Pam was my Head of House when I joined Beaufort and it was an absolute pleasure working for her. She always brought a smile to my face and made sure I was getting on OK during my first year. Never a bad word about anything! I will always be indebted to her for her support and sense of humour. A great loss to our community, a much loved member of staff and you will be greatly missed by staff, students and me.
  • Diana Waters 6 months ago
    Pam, the friendly,cheerful, generous,whacky,tender hearted lady with a wicked sense of humour and a twinkle in her eye.She had time for everyone, able to see through the hype with a well placed word and always looking out for the underdog, she gathered and protected the vulnerable, she was at breakfast club,on playground duty and where students could seek her out.Their stability in a sometimes unkind world. Her pastoral nature, hard work, her sense of fun and honest disrespect when needed, her priority was always people, she will be missed beyond words.Pam was always the first to join in or initiate fun or to collect for the homeless, or the youngster undergoing cancer treatment. How cruel to have life cut short when there was so much she was looking forward to, a proud mum always and first. Her sunny nature and genuine care will be truly missed. Di Waters.
  • Alice Weavill 6 months ago

    Pam, someone who lived out our values day in day out.

    Pam is a huge loss to our school community. She brightened every day with her humour and looked after us all. Pam's selfless and caring nature can be characterised by the many charity events that she organised, many of which she dressed up for. I will remember her as wonder woman because she was. Pam was an outstanding pastoral lead, her commitment to the children in her care was inspirational, I will miss working alongside her terribly. My thoughts are with her family.

    Mrs Howes was my tutor from year 7 too year 11 and it was great you would never mind going in to tutor in the morning because you always know you could have a laugh with her and she would make jokes back.

She was such a great teacher you struggled she was there to help you and not push you to get it done in a rush this always made me feel confidant that i would get it in the end. The best part of being in her tutor was sweety friday it was brilliant. she will be madly missed RIP MRS HOWES 😇😇❤❤

I wasn’t always in the best of moods but you would never hold it against me in the next lesson. You never gave up on me,had you as my teacher in the last year of education and i can honestly say if it wasn’t for your persistence with me I wouldn’t have passed maths. I was so close to giving up on it in the last year but you pushed me and pushed me to pass. Gone but never forgotten❤️

  • Suzie Roberts 6 months ago
    Pam, we are all devastated and still trying to comprehend what has happened. Your warmth and generosity towards every student and member of staff will be hugely missed. I remember when you had just moved into your new classroom and had gone out to buy some reading books for your students, as you hated the idea that someone didn't have an opportunity to have a book of their own. You always went above and beyond to care for others and show kindness at all times; an attitude which made you an absolute joy to work with. Sending love to your family x

    Dear Rich and Mike, I was so sad to hear the news about your mum today. Dear Pam, such a laugh, always caring, and a friend to all. I hope you'll find some comfort in knowing how much Pam was loved and respected by everyone who knew her. Sending you lots of love. xx

    It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Pam for the past 20 years. She was a fantastic Maths teacher, but we should never forget that she was also once a brilliant TA in the SEN Dept. The care and compassion she showed from the very start were a part of her to the end. My deepest sympathies are with her family, who should be incredibly proud of her.

    Pam you were a bright ray of sunshine and truly golden. My original “Westgate Shining Star”. In life it is a blessing to know someone who is truly selfless - you were one of the special few. You were so compassionate, caring and inspirational. I always admired your eternal optimism and ability to make everyone who needed it feel special and loved. Your kindness to me in the darkest and hardest times will never be forgotten and you will be not just a huge loss to our school community but to every single person’s life you have touched. I will think of you with your huge smile and laugh and know how truly lucky I am to have known you.

    So sad to hear this news. Ms Howes was a amazing person, great teacher and someone who was your friend. She made us laugh by turning up dressed as a clown for a non-school uniform day, or by joking around with you in the morning. She made me and many others smile when we saw her. She was there for you no matter what. She was someone who you could go to with anything and she would help. Rest In Peace Ms Howes, you will be Missed

    Pamellllllaaaaaaa, sweetie, this was not part of the plan. You’ve left us all, heartbroken, far too soon. A beautiful, glowing light has been turned off without warning or reason. I only hope and pray that you are spreading oodles of love, cheer, mischief, hope, fun, happiness, and Pamelaaaaa sprinkles up there in paradise. I’ll never forget our fantastic silliness and times together, both in and out of school. Gosh Pam, we had some laughs! You have, and will always be one of my most genuine friends and I’ll miss you beyond imagination. You’ve left one heck of a legacy behind you Pam, and have changed and enhanced lives of staff and students, sometimes beyond belief. You really were awesome all round. Thank you for being you, and all you did for everyone. Your gorgeous boys must be so incredibly proud to have you as their mum. I know you were beaming with pride and admiration when you spoke of them, and rightly so! Look after them from paradise Pam. Spread your thoroughly well deserved wings, fly high, get some needed rest and then enjoy the peace, and create joy and laughter up there. It comes naturally to you. I’ll never forget you Pam. Heaven's gain is our loss. Sleep tight and God Bless you girl xxx

    Pammy, Heartbroken and gutted beyond belief. Not only were you an inspirational teacher and proud mum to 'your boys' but you were an amazingly true friend. Always smiling, full of advice, wisdom and support. Full of fun (fancy dress) with a huge, open, charitable heart! The sky at night has gained the brightest star that we, in the day, have lost. Much love my friend, rest in peace x

    Dearest Pam, What can be said that hasn’t already been said about you, you were truly awesome. Miss are chats in the B area when you were on lunchtime duty. We did have a laugh and joke., you had an amazing sense of humour. I can remember one day it was pouring down with rain, and you forgot your umbrella. I went into the cleaning cupboard and got you a bin liner to put over your head. We laughed so much as you ran to the maths block with it on. You will be missed by all rip piece my lovely. Xxx

    R.I.P to the best maths teacher that existed. Not a day went by when she didn't make someone smile in her lesson. She wasn't just a teacher but a best friend to me, the staff and all the students. She always made. lessons fun like sweety Friday, we would go on computers, she let us talk and mess around a bit and she would join in and laugh along with us. She was an amazing person who always spread her joyful spirit where ever she went. It's so sad to her go but now we will carry her joyfulness along with us and spread it around the school, will do that for her. Rest in peace Pam Howes. You will be missed greatly by all. ❤😭

    Pam... you were like Christmas- something, the someone you looked forward to seeing, being and sharing with.You had a unique ability to light up a space and like the Christmas star your rays shone out to guide, cheer and comfort others. Your lovely boys will continue to live out the values you showed. Abiding memories of being your room buddy on the Beaufort 2006 Iceland trip- how we laughed way past bedtime. Wouldn’t have missed you for the world and thank from the bottom of my heart for sharing your journey with me and with all of us. We were blessed.

    Pam was by far and away the best TA in the Maths Department and very supportive of both pupils and staff. Very keen to gain new subject knowledge and teaching skills. She was someone who I could totally rely on and I felt we were a real team when working together. Not only a colleague but a friend. Sad news and I am sure she will be missed by all who knew her.

    Pam, one of the kindest, funniest woman I have ever met in my life. An inspiration to anyone who crossed paths with her. It was a pleasure to get to know Pam over the past few years. Pam was the queen of fancy dress, whether it be wonder woman, pudsy or a clown. I'll never forget the day I was driving into ASDA after work and heading towards me was a clown with a multi-coloured wig! RIP, you will be greatly missed x

  • Mike Howes - Son of Pamela 6 months ago
    I just wanted to pass on my huge thanks to every single one of you that have helped illustrate a perfect reflection of my kind hearted, lovely, caring, hard working, best fancy dress, supportive, smiley and beautiful Mum. I have always said to my Mum, she never really understood how many lives she changes on a daily basis whether that it is at School or outside of school. I've always told her how amazing she is in her Career, how many kids she's helped not with just getting their grades but their private lives also. She always just thought she was "doing her job" but I always said you're going beyond that. My Mum was my Guru. She was my Best Friend - she was truly an Angel in disguise, and now she is a true Angel in the Skies with all the other Angels that she held so dear to her heart. Rich and I are just so heartbroken. We will miss you so much Mum. When your first Grandchild is born in July, I will teach him the ways you have to others, and I will teach him about you. I hope you're reading all of these Beautiful messages from people. You were truly loved, by everyone. I love you. Goodbye. x x x

    Mike and Rich, you were treasured by your mum, she talked about you often with such pride! My deepest sympathy to you both and I am praying that you would find peace and comfort at this time of heartbreak. We share in your great sadness. Pam lived big everyday for the good of those around her, impacting thousands of lives. Such a happy, fun, kindhearted lady with a big friendly smile and contagious enthusiasm. Hard working and determined to make a difference for good in her teaching, pastoral care and fund raising. Always calm, patient, caring and encouraging. The last time I spoke with Pam she had tears rolling for her hard working students who were devastated about the exams news. Our last email saying how she was 'missing the kids dreadfully' and asking about the welfare of individuals. A truly inspirational lady!

    "All things bright and beautiful" that was our friend Pam. She gave so much more than she took in this world and our lives are more the richer for knowing her. She was one of the few people who always asked how you were and then listened to the answer,not moving on until she knew you were ok. In my own sickness and health she was always there with a witty text or a cheeky comment to lighten my day,it just came naturally to her The students adored her and the word fun and caring is repeated over and over again in their comments. Lets all try and be a bit more like Pam and show the world we care,especially for the disadvantaged ones who she cared for so much. My thoughts are with Mike and Rich," her boys",she would have been an amazing Granny. Love to you both xxxx

    Pam, you were such a shining light in all of our lives, effortlessly bringing joy and a smile to us all. You were the kindest, most lovely of women to have ever met. Getting to know you was truly special. Every time I would talk to you, it was massively special, and you possessed a positive spark difficult to replicate; Pam was a truly lovely woman. Very sad to hear the news of your passing, my condolences to the family at this hardest of times. Your generosity and charitable spirit was second-to-none. You never hesitated to help anyone that would come to you, who needed it. I will be forever grateful for the happy memories shared with you, and the immense joy you brought to everything you did.
