Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

At Huxlow we believe that students who are happy, feel safe and are taught well will enjoy school and as a result be successful.

We are passionate about caring for our students, ensuring that they are all known as individuals. Ofsted June 2016 stated that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

Students are challenged to be as good as they possibly can be and supported to achieve this. Academic success is hugely important to us and we have a rich history of students of all abilities and from a wide variety of backgrounds achieving as well as they could.

However, schools are about far more than academic success and we believe that developing “The Whole Child” is one of our core responsibilities. In order to enjoy a successful adult life it is important that our students develop characteristics such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative, and communication.

I am hugely proud of our school and am happy to extend an invitation to all Parents/ Carers to come and visit us during the school day. Please contact us on enquiries@huxlow.northants.sch.uk and we will arrange a convenient time.

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.
