At Huxlow Academy, there is a strong commitment from staff to offer our students an inclusive and enriching educational experience, both within the curriculum and through a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. An exciting array of clubs, activities and trips provide a springboard for developing Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication (LORIC) skills.
Throughout the academic year, all year groups are offered a range of enrichment activities which link to curriculum areas, future career opportunities and our school values and the Huxlow Way. These opportunities begin in Year 7 with a Jungle Parc personal development adventure for all students to participate on to build mutual respect, pride and ambition amongst themselves as a form and individually. There are also many other opportunities as they journey through the school through the disciplines of sport, theatre, engineering, university experiences and museums, to name a few.
