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.

Ofsted Report

Huxlow Science College is delighted to announce that following a two-day inspection, 14th and 15th June 2016, it has been judged to be a GOOD school, where “barriers for pupils have been broken” and “the glass ceiling has been removed”.

The inspectors reported that:

  • Senior Leaders’ uncompromising commitment to raising standards and their high expectations for pupils have led to an impressive improvement in pupils’ outcomes for current year groups.
  • Everyone in the school puts pupils’ well-being at the centre of everything that they do.
  • Teachers provide well for the most able pupils.
  • Leaders support and nurture pupils who have special educational needs or disability.
  • Leaders and teachers are determined that only the best is good enough for pupils at the school. They have introduced an aspirational culture which pupils have embraced.

“This judgement is a recognition of the hard work of the students and staff over the last two years. We are all pleased with the outcome which will act as a springboard to further improvements in the quality of our students’ education.” Steve Gordon, Headteacher.
