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.

Russia & Revolution - 6th Form visit London

On Tuesday 10th December, some of our Yr12 and Yr 13 history cohort travelled to the prestigious Emmanuel Centre in Westminster, London to attend a series of lectures relating to "Russia and Revolution".  This is a key module in their A Level studies and was an informative event that allowed them to hear from experts in their field:

Dr Daniel Beer, Royal Holloway, University of London: The Collapse of the Romanov Dynasty: The Russian Empire in the Reign of Nichola II

Professor Robert Service, University of Oxford: Revolution, civil war and the rise of communism

Dr Catherine Merridale, Institute of Historical Research: Vladimir Lenin, Shaper of the Revolution

Dr Simon Huxtable, Goldsmiths, University of London: Utopia Postponed: Why Nikita Khrushchev didn't build communism

Dr Martin McCauley, University College London: Stalin, his dictatorship and legacy

Further to this, the students had the opportunity to hear from Dr Robin Bunce , who gave invaluable advice on how to structure exam answers and how to avoid making common mistakes.  Dr Bunce is especially relevant as he is the person who wrote the textbook that we use as a foundation to the course!

The students behaved impeccably and were a credit to TENC.  They were all able to make useful notes and were full of praise for the event, and some of the feedback is below.

"Really good"

"Good contextual knowledge - really brought it to life"

"To the point - really good to hear from experts"

"Dr Huxtable was very applicable to the exams"

Thank you to the students and to Mrs Bowers for making the day run so smoothly - despite London traffic making the return journey 4 hours long!
