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.

World Mental Health Day 2019

Staff at Huxlow Science College enjoyed breakfast together to support World Mental Health Day, on Thursday 10th October 2019. 

The breakfast was organised by the “Time to Change Champions”, members of staff who work together to change the way people think and act about mental health.  The theme of the event was “Ask Twice.”  Time to Change are leading this campaign by encouraging people to “Ask Twice” if they suspect that someone is struggling with their mental health.  Asking again, with interest can help someone to open up for the first time.  It was a great opportunity for staff to spend time talking to each other in a relaxed environment.

Huxlow Science College are focused on changing attitudes around mental health.  We signed up to the Time to Change Employer Pledge last year.  By signing this pledge, we are demonstrating our commitment to ensuring that all employees feel supported enough to talk about their experiences.  We have made a number of adjustments to the workplace, including adding a new “Wellbeing Area” to the staff room.  The area has been designed with peace and tranquillity in mind and is somewhere for staff to go to rest and recharge.

A huge thank you to Andrew, one of our School Governors and Sainsburys for their donation of mince pies.  Their donation was so generous that we were able to share some with our local nursing home, Highmead House for the residents to enjoy.
