Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

Welcome to Huxlow Science College

At Huxlow Science College we believe that school days are precious and form the foundations for our students’ future lives. We have a determination to ensure that our students are given the best possible opportunities to succeed both academically and as young people who are an asset to the communities in which they live. Our community is rightly very proud of our school, our students and their successes. We have a rich history of students of all abilities and backgrounds fulfilling their potential in all areas of their education and they are supported and challenged daily to gain the skills, confidence and qualifications they will need to be successful in an ever-changing world.

We pride ourselves on the levels of support and guidance we offer our students and place students and their needs at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to ensure students are happy, feel safe and are taught well. Developing ‘The Whole Child’ is one of our core responsibilities and our students are challenged to aim for the highest personal and academic standards. We have high expectations of behaviour and respect across our community and forge excellent relationships with both students and parents.

I am hugely proud to be the Headteacher of Huxlow Science College and to lead the school as we build on recent increases in both student numbers and exam results. It is such a privilege to be entrusted with the lives of the young people in our community, to shape their characters and enable their success.

We look forward to welcoming all prospective students, parents and carers to experience all that is Huxlow in the very near future.

“Routed and Ready” workshops

On Wednesday 13 June, Year 8 students from Huxlow Science College engaged in a series of “Routed and Ready” workshops aimed at enhancing their knowledge and understanding of prospective career paths for them in the future. Students actively participated in a range of sessions that allowed them to explore a variety of job sectors and roles, as well as the qualifications required to access these careers. Activities ranged from how students can plan their next steps into their chosen careers to how they can market their skills and qualities to increase their prospects for employment.

Responses from students include:

  • “I think that Year 8 is the perfect time to start these activities because we are very open minded at our age”
  • “I enjoyed the career cards because it gave me lots more options of what I want to do and I found out about new jobs that I would never have found out about”
