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.

Juniors enjoy Maths Masterclasses

For several years, Huxlow Science College have offered more able children from local primary schools a unique opportunity to challenge themselves in Maths through weekly visits to our school to study with specialist Maths teachers.

Irthlingborough Junior School’s Headteacher said: “The Year 5 Maths Masterclass (which 12 of our pupils attended) was a real boost to their self-esteem and confidence. They all enjoyed the challenge and the opportunity to do something none of their class-mates were doing, and to have an insight into what Maths at secondary level might look like. They liked the investigation element and they are now more willing to have a go at explanation and reasoning. One session a week for only a few weeks is too short a time to have real impact academically, but their enjoyment and confidence were definitely boosted. We would very much like the next cohort of Year 5s to have the same opportunity - well worthwhile.”
