Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

At Huxlow we believe that students who are happy, feel safe and are taught well will enjoy school and as a result be successful.

We are passionate about caring for our students, ensuring that they are all known as individuals. Ofsted June 2016 stated that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

Students are challenged to be as good as they possibly can be and supported to achieve this. Academic success is hugely important to us and we have a rich history of students of all abilities and from a wide variety of backgrounds achieving as well as they could.

However, schools are about far more than academic success and we believe that developing “The Whole Child” is one of our core responsibilities. In order to enjoy a successful adult life it is important that our students develop characteristics such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative, and communication.

I am hugely proud of our school and am happy to extend an invitation to all Parents/ Carers to come and visit us during the school day. Please contact us on enquiries@huxlow.northants.sch.uk and we will arrange a convenient time.

6th Form visit Enterprise Centre

A number of 6th Form students visited the Enterprise Centre in Raunds to explore construction based careers.   

The Business Account Manager showed the students around alongside ASHE.   The students were provided with a CAD impression of the completed Enterprise Centre, along with the promise of continued support as and when needed.

The students found the trip very worthwhile - "We met up with an Economic Development Officer working for the council, after telling us interesting anecdotes about his work, he introduced us to the project managers on site, and I was truly blown away as how they logistically managed such a big site.

"Whilst being toured around, we were taking Architectural ideas that I will definitely use in my coursework in the future.

The Economy Development Officer was really helpful and was keen to help me in any way he could.   I was to go into architecture, so he has emailed me the public plans/designs to the site, both handwritten and computerized which is incredibly interesting and helpful to me."
