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.

Huxlow Science College celebrates excellent GCSE results

It’s double celebrations all round at Huxlow Science College today (August 23rd) as Year 11 students achieved some of the best GCSE results in its history. This is hot on the heels of impressive post-16 results last week. Today 56% of students gained 5 GCSEs including English and Maths at Grade 4 and above (the equivalent to 5 A*-C). 43% of students gained the same at Grade 5 and above, which is a significant improvement on last year and likely to be well above the national average.

Headteacher Steve Gordon said: “We are extremely proud of our GCSE students and thrilled that these excellent results reflect the high level of dedication they have shown to their studies.

“Staff and students have risen to the challenges posed by the new numerical GCSE system which applies for the first time this year in most subjects. Their response to the requirements introduced by the new grading system has been outstanding. As a result, there has been a significant rise in the school’s provisional Progress 8 score. Students have had bespoke revision programmes tailored to their needs to ensure they entered their exams feeling calm, confident and well prepared.”

He added: “Here at Huxlow we focus on developing the whole child and as well as celebrating academic achievement. We are confident that all of our Year 11s are prepared to go on and do well in the adult world.”

Huxlow’s highest achieving student was Trinity Gough who gained 7 Grade 9’s, a Grade 8 and a Distinction. She now looks forward to starting Sixth Form at Huxlow in September, studying Maths, Biology, English Literature and French to lead her into a career in Languages.
Mark Curtis-Rose is also celebrating after gaining top marks across the board including the maximum Grade 9 in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science, as well as Grade 8 in Maths and Grade A in Additional Maths.

The Science subjects, Huxlow’s specialism, continue to perform at an outstanding level; the percentage of students achieving Grade 4 (equivalent to C) or higher were 84% in Chemistry, 80% in Physics and 71% in Biology. In addition, the number of students achieving the maximum Grade 9 (higher than A*) were 9 in Chemistry, 10 in Physics and 6 in Biology.

The Irthlingborough secondary school has posted a particularly good set of results in Maths, English, French and Sport. An impressive 81% of students gained a Grade 4 (equivalent to C) or higher in French. Of particular note, students gained the top grade 9 (higher than A*) in English, Maths, History, French and Computing. BTEC results are excellent this year, with 10 students achieving Distinction or Distinction* in BTEC Sport.
A busy year at Huxlow Science College culminated in today’s fantastic outcomes for Year 11. And it’s set to get even busier in September as the school welcomes its largest Year 7 cohort to date and launches Dance as a new curriculum area with stunning, new, state-of-the-art performing arts facilities. Huxlow’s Sixth Form is also looking forward to greeting record numbers of students, offering them the widest choice of courses in the county.

Given improving results, a Good Ofsted rating and the school’s increasing popularity, Huxlow Science College are planning to increase capacity further for September 2019. Year 5 and 6 parents are invited to visit Huxlow and see for themselves at Open Evening on Wednesday 3rd October 2018 from 6pm.
