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.

“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”
