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.

Year 12 "Blaze a Trail" at the National Apprenticeship Show 2019

The 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week took place from Monday 4th March to Friday 8th March. It is put together by the National Apprenticeship Service. It is designed to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact that they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.


The theme of the week was “Blaze a Trail.” As in previous years, there were a range of activities and events hosted across the country. The aim of the events being to change the perception of apprenticeships and to encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to take up an apprenticeship.


As part of National Apprenticeship Week, Year 12 students spent a day at the National Apprenticeship Show which took place at the Central Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes. The event was designed to bring together employers, colleges and providers. Students were able to learn about higher and degree apprenticeships in a fun and interactive way.


It was one of the largest events of the week and many large companies were present including the NHS, Thames Valley Police and AstraZeneca. Students were able to speak to staff who explained how the application process works. It was a great way for employers and providers to show the opportunities that are available.


Apprenticeships are an increasingly popular alternative to the traditional university route of gaining a degree. Apprentices work for the companies whilst studying for a foundation or a bachelor’s degree. It allows students the opportunity to work alongside experienced staff and gain skills whilst earning a wage.
