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.

The Buzzed - a play about drugs and mental health

Students from Northampton College visited Huxlow Science College to perform their powerful and thought provoking play, The Buzzed.  The play follows the story of 13 year old Charlotte who meets her older self at 17 and 22 years of age.  The story follows her teenage years, drinking and smoking which eventually leads to illegal drugs.

It is part of a county wide tour of 20 secondary schools in Northamptonshire, and is being delivered in conjunction with the TALK OUT LOUD mental health programme. which is jointly funded by Northamptonshire County Council and the local NHS.   

The play is used as a way to encourage young people to talk about mental health and the effect that drugs and alcohol can have on us and those around us.

One student said "It was amazing, so good, that I want to see it again!"
