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.

Huxlow students thank local business 'Higgins' for donation of wood to the DT Department

Huxlow Science College DT department have recently run a new project for Year 8 students to design and make a bee and bug house. This project not only teaches them a variety of practical skills, but is also a project that students want to take home and use. Even though this project is excellent, it is expensive as high quality wood is needed for it to be durable outside. Rather than redesigning the project using poor quality wood, our DT Technician Mr Thorley made contact with the builders' merchants ‘Higgins’, based in Irthlingborough, to ask for a donation of materials for the project to be run for the whole of Year 8. They donated over £100 worth of wood specifically to be used for Year 8 students which will dramatically improve the outcomes produced by students.

Miss Campbell and Mr Tufnail took eleven students down to Higgins to hand over cakes and cards they had made to thank them. They also had the chance to show them their work and to explain how they made them. Hopefully the department can make more links with local businesses in the future to enable students to create even better and more challenging projects.
