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.

Dave Cousins, Author, visits Huxlow Science College

Year 7 and 8 students welcomed author, Dave Cousins to Huxlow Science College on Monday 1st April. He spent time talking to the students, answering questions and signing copies of his book, Waiting for Gonzo.Collage 2019 04 02 11 12 53

All students were captivated as he shared stories of his dreams and aspirations growing up, from visions of being an astronaut to goals of being in a band. He spoke of his stubbornness and determination and how that encouraged him and drove him on.

Throughout his talk, his love of writing was evident. Comic books at a young age and songs as he grew older eventually led to him writing a novel in his cold, dusty attic. Ultimately, the message that he left the students with was not to give up. You will find your “thing”, hold onto it and you never know where it will lead you.
