Exam Results 2021


Students at Huxlow Science College in Irthlingborough are today (August 10th) celebrating some outstanding A Level and BTEC results.

Year on year, Huxlow students achieve exceptional post-16 results in Science and other curriculum areas, and this year is no exception, with the high grades across the curriculum. BTEC vocational students performed particularly well in Sport and Applied Science.

Fantastic results in BTEC including Triple Distinction stars have paved the way to courses such as Masters of Nursing, Biomedical science, Social work and Sport and exercise science. Excellent A level results have enabled students to study Psychological and Behavioral Sciences, Nursing, Medicine, Business, Chemistry, Aerospace, Criminology, Teaching, Philosophy, Politics and Economics, Fashion Business and Management, Product Design and Technology at amazing universities such as Cambridge, Glasgow, Leeds, York, Nottingham, along with other competitive universities such as Loughborough and Birmingham, Bristol, Kings College London and London Met.

In light of the Teacher Assessed grades awarded this year, students and staff have been resilient and relentless in terms of their commitment to their studies. We are delighted that students who have studied towards their A Levels and BTECs for two years in unprecedented times have achieved the outcomes that they deserve. It is down to the hard work of both students and staff. We have offered high quality careers advice to ensure that all students have studied courses that are well tailored to their talents and aspirations.

The Ferrers School, Huxlow and Rushden work together as The East Northants College (TENC) for Post 16 Studies and have an excellent tradition of success.

Huxlow staff would like to congratulate our students on receiving the results that they deserve in this very difficult time. It has been an unprecedented year for receiving results of their three year GCSE course, and a culmination of their school education. We are pleased that finally, the outcome is as it should be for our students. We are extremely proud of our GCSE students and pleased that the outcomes reflect the high level of dedication they have shown to their studies. Staff and students have risen to the challenge this year with outstanding commitment and resilience.

Here at Huxlow, we focus on developing the whole child as well as celebrating academic achievement. We are confident that all of our students are prepared to go on and do well in the adult world.

We are looking forward to supporting students through their next phase of education here at our sixth form and on the next part of their journey.
