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.

"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.
