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.

TENC visit Pembroke College

TENC is very proud of its number of applications to Oxford and Cambridge universities and do a lot to prepare our students for the process. On Tuesday 3rd March , a group of Year 12 students from Ferrers, Huxlow and Rushden spent a most enjoyable and informative day at Pembroke College, Cambridge University. The students were a credit their schools.

The day was very much focused on the Oxbridge Application Process, and following a really helpful talk on the university itself and how to apply, they were given the opportunity to ask questions of current students at Pembroke. Our group had a tour of the beautiful college buildings and were treated to lunch in the most impressive dining hall alongside other students and university lecturers. The afternoon sessions explored the application process further and students actually met and were given advice by the Pembroke Admissions Tutor. They were encouraged to think about the importance of their UCAS personal statements and particularly to focus on the “super curriculum” the additional reading and research they need to carry out in connection with the subject they want to study.

It was an inspiring day and really helped them on their journey to an Oxbridge application.
