Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

Welcome to Huxlow Science College

At Huxlow Science College we believe that school days are precious and form the foundations for our students’ future lives. We have a determination to ensure that our students are given the best possible opportunities to succeed both academically and as young people who are an asset to the communities in which they live. Our community is rightly very proud of our school, our students and their successes. We have a rich history of students of all abilities and backgrounds fulfilling their potential in all areas of their education and they are supported and challenged daily to gain the skills, confidence and qualifications they will need to be successful in an ever-changing world.

We pride ourselves on the levels of support and guidance we offer our students and place students and their needs at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to ensure students are happy, feel safe and are taught well. Developing ‘The Whole Child’ is one of our core responsibilities and our students are challenged to aim for the highest personal and academic standards. We have high expectations of behaviour and respect across our community and forge excellent relationships with both students and parents.

I am hugely proud to be the Headteacher of Huxlow Science College and to lead the school as we build on recent increases in both student numbers and exam results. It is such a privilege to be entrusted with the lives of the young people in our community, to shape their characters and enable their success.

We look forward to welcoming all prospective students, parents and carers to experience all that is Huxlow in the very near future.

Paul Letch - Headteacher


Huxlow Science College is expanding!


Huxlow Science College is expanding! Following a Good Ofsted rating in 2016 and the highest ever GCSE and A level results in 2017, Huxlow are looking forward to welcoming their largest Year 7 cohort to date for 2018.

Although the original Year 7 places have all been filled, the good news is that Huxlow has made additional capacity so extra places are now available for September 2018 and the years ahead.

Record numbers of students joined Huxlow’s sixth form in 2017, with numbers set to increase again for 2018. As part of our exciting sixth form partnership, TENC, they have the widest choice of subjects on offer in the county.

Now is an excellent time to join the best performing secondary school in the local area so we invite you to visit us and discover what Huxlow Science College can offer your child, or find out more on the Student Admissions page.
