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 Rocks!! Creative community art project launched

Rocks 17 1000x600px 

Huxlow Rocks is a fun, creative, community art project bringing a little magic and mystery to our local community. Huxlow students have been decorating rocks and on the reverse they have written "Facebook Huxlow Rocks! Hide me or keep me! Please upload a photo". The painted rocks will be hidden around our local town and villages. Those who are lucky enough to find one are asked to post a picture of it to the Facebook group. The whole community are invited to join in and get creative making their own or posting their rock pictures to the online group.

Inspired by “Norfolk Rocks”, a community group on Facebook with 40,000 participants, and similar groups nationwide, Mrs E Wright, Head of Art at Huxlow Science College started up “Huxlow Rocks” in September 2017. All Year 7 students were invited to take part, as well as younger students from local primary schools who visited for Open Evening in October. A group has been set up on Facebook called “Huxlow Rocks” which is the hub of the project.

With almost 100 rocks ready to go, the project was officially launched on Monday 20 November 2017. Mrs Wright and some of the students involved were interviewed on BBC Radio Northampton and for the Northants Telegraph. They then took their rocks out into the community, ready to be found!

And now it’s over to you! Anyone and everyone is welcome to take part in this wonderful community project. Please decorate your own rock; something abstract, some text or really show off those professional art skills! Anything that will brighten somebody’s day! On the reverse, please write "Facebook Huxlow Rocks! Hide me or keep me! Please upload a photo". Then join the group and see if you can spot your rock, or upload a photo if you find somebody else’s.
