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.

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!"
