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.

Inspirational taster day at Pembroke College, Cambridge for Year 11

On Thursday 4 October 2018, a group of Year 11 students from across the three TENC schools of Ferrers, Huxlow and Rushden were privileged to be invited to a Taster Day at Pembroke College, Cambridge University.

It was a fabulous day, aiming to showcase both Pembroke College and Cambridge as a world class university. As well as presentations on the courses on offer and top tips on the application process, the students were given a tour of the college by second year maths student Josh. Not only were they overwhelmed with just how "normal' he was, but also with the beauty of the college and its wonderful old buildings.

After a memorable lunch in the Great Hall, was an interactive lecture on linguistics, delivered by a PhD student. It gave everyone a real insight into what a Cambridge seminar would be like and our students did us proud - really getting to grips with the academic challenges posed and answering really hard questions with enormous confidence and skill!

The students said:
• "It was such a wonderful experience. I have never been to Cambridge before and it really opened my mind to the options open to me"
• "It was a great day"
• "I really enjoyed the day - it completely changed my perception of Cambridge. It was beautiful"
• "The food was amazing"
