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 help to “Stamp Out Stigma”

Northamptonshire’s annual Mental Health Awareness Day took place on Friday 9th February 2018, and Huxlow Science College students showed their support through a range of activities throughout the week.

Over the past few months, a small group of Huxlow students have been working with their peers from across the county to produce a guide for teachers and parents/carers called “All I Ask”.

The group were distributing wristbands and spreading the word to students and staff across the College in the run-up to Mental Health Awareness Day, when schools across the county join together to show their support for the campaign to “Stamp Out Stigma”. The day provides a great opportunity to raise awareness of mental health stigma to young people in lots of interesting, fun and inclusive way, culminating in a balloon release at midday (above and below).
