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.

Huxlow held their first ever Christmas Fair on Friday 8 December. Our very talented school choir and ukulele group performed festive songs throughout the evening, joined by all Year 7 and 8 students. Also in the Hall was the Christmas themed café, selling non-alcoholic mulled wine, hot chocolate, tea, coffee and squash along with fresh crepes, mince pies, cakes, biscuits and clementines.

Over in the Sports Hall, teachers from every department had designed their own Christmas themed stalls and sideshows, including Santa's sleigh ride, Santa's steady hand, Lucky Dip, Around the World and Prime Balloon Time, along with crafts such as Pixlow, homemade sweets, homemade Christmas cards and decorations.

“What an amazing night that was and thank you to everyone who helped, performed, donated, ran a stall and attended. This was a festastic event, thanks to the whole Huxlow community and all the input behind the scenes by the elves. Thank you, thank you, thank you again, you were all brrrrr...illiant” said Mrs Letts, Head of Key Stage 4.
