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.

Crazy Hats Charity spend time with Y13 students

Huxlow Science College welcomed Glennis Hooper and her colleague to talk to Y13 Health and Social Care students as part of a unit on physiological disorders.

Crazy Hats is a small charity based in Wellingborough. They support all aspects of breast cancer care in Northamptonshire. Crazy Hats was formed 18 years ago when its founder, Glennis Hooper, was diagnosed with breast cancer. They run support groups and have donated monies to better equip and train staff and surgeons at local hospitals.

One of the assignments that the Y13 students are working on, is a care plan for a breast cancer sufferer. Glennis spent time talking through her own experiences of diagnosis and treatment. She also educated the students on the emotional and physical impacts of living with breast cancer.

The visit was a great success and we would like to thank Glennis for their time.
