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.

"Future Teachers" workshop for sixth form

It was fabulous to have so many Yr 12 and Yr 13 students from Ferrers Rushden and Huxlow attend our TENC training workshop, held on the morning of Weds 5th December at The Ferrers School. The workshop was designed to acknowledge the huge contribution our sixth form students can make to the lives of lower school students when they help out in lessons,provide 1-1 support, listen to pupils read or act as sports leaders. The workshop explored how they can get the most out of the experience, the skills required, but also looked at the all important issue of safeguarding.

It was an action packed session, designed to help all those volunteering with younger students but also looking at how the sixth formers can build up their evidence based portfolios should they wish to enter the teaching profession in a few years time. It was so rewarding to have such a large number attending because they want to put something back into their school community.
