Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

My philosophy is very clear, 'if it is not good enough for my child, then it is not good enough for yours'.

At Huxlow we are committed to developing the whole child, and strive to ensure that every student’s experience is one where they feel Safe, Happy and experience Success.

School years should be the most memorable, and our aim is to offer a wealth of opportunities and experiences to ensure every student leaves enriched and equipped for life beyond Huxlow.

Each member of staff is committed to a common goal which is to ensure ‘every individual is empowered to fulfil their potential’. As well as an excellent academic provision student can expect high quality wellbeing support through out each Key Stage. Our most recent OFSTED recognised that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

We are proud that as a result of their Huxlow experience and personal dedication, students are supported to achieve their goals and go on to a range of top Universities including Oxford and Cambridge, access competitive Apprenticeships and acquire sought after roles in the world of work. Mostly, we are proud that our students go on to be responsible young adults who are an asset to our community.

I am incredibly lucky to lead such a dedicated team of staff at Huxlow and to watch our students flourish, equipped for exciting futures, as a result of staff expertise and guidance.

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.
