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.

Year 12 Futures Week - Monday 17th June - Friday 21st June

Students from all the TENC schools have spent this week thinking about their futures. To start the week and give students a real insight into the world of work, all were given the opportunity of up to three days’ work placement in a relevant and meaningful context. Students found some amazing placements and we look forward to hearing all about their experiences.

On Thursday, we visited the Universities Conference at Bedford University which provided a unique opportunity for them– and anyone supporting them – to explore the wide range of options available after school, all in one setting. Whether they were interested in applying to university or looking at alternative pathways, they all found something that interested them.

The week culminated in the TENC Futures’ Conference where students were treated to an amazing range of speakers from a whole range of different career pathways. What an amazing bunch of inspirational people! Our keynote speaker was Kevin Rogers from Wilson Browne Solicitors. He gave us an insightful look at his experience in studying law and becoming a solicitor, not that it was an easy journey!Futures week 1

We also heard from people who have forged paths into teaching, medicine, sport’s journalism, the Army, business ownership, marketing, and the civil service. All our guests are fresh out of education and they have had really different and exciting routes into their career paths.

We hope our students are equally inspired by the event which illustrates that anything can be achieved when you make a choice to take a chance to change your life.
