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.

TENC - Bergen -Belsen 75

A group of TENC students visited Belsen Bergan Camp on Wednesday 12th February.   One student has written her experiences below:

Pre-Visit


We battled through Storm Ciara and assigned our group upon arrival. After a brief introduction and quiz about what we already knew, we were split off to complete activities such as a timeline of Bergen-Belsen and reading testimonies of survivors and liberators. Our educator, Anna, took time focusing on mentally preparing ourselves for the trip to come.

The Visit

The 2am wake up led us to touch down at Hanover airport around 8. We boarded a coach containing two groups and were introduced to our other educator, Sarah. Our first stop was the Displaced Persons Camp - an active military barracks - and saw Freedom Square. We spent time hearing testimonies of people who were liberated and what it meant to them before heading off to the camp site. The entrance you could've accidentally walked your dog onto! We also saw the burnt remains of the delousing and disinfection centre. Just before the memorial and the majority of mass graves was the education centre. We looked at pictures, adding a human touch to the experience. We saw devastation. We saw marriages. We saw births and we saw the wonder of sport and politics occurring in the DP camp after liberation. We went on to the memorial and saw the Israeli and National memorials with specific headstones dedicated to certain families. Two that stood out were the stone for Margot and Anne Frank and the Oppenheimer family which holds a special place in the Holocaust Educational Trust's heart as they worked close with Paul and Rudi Oppenheimer - brothers who were liberated from Bergen-Belsen. We finally held a ceremony and placed stones at the memorial, a Jewish tradition of remembrance.

Reflections


We returned to Hilton Birmingham Metropole to discuss what we had seen and started to plan our Legacy projects. We looked closely at pre-existing presentations, memorials and social media connecting modern-day issues such as antisemitism and Islamophobia.
