Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

Welcome to Huxlow Science College

At Huxlow Science College we believe that school days are precious and form the foundations for our students’ future lives. We have a determination to ensure that our students are given the best possible opportunities to succeed both academically and as young people who are an asset to the communities in which they live. Our community is rightly very proud of our school, our students and their successes. We have a rich history of students of all abilities and backgrounds fulfilling their potential in all areas of their education and they are supported and challenged daily to gain the skills, confidence and qualifications they will need to be successful in an ever-changing world.

We pride ourselves on the levels of support and guidance we offer our students and place students and their needs at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to ensure students are happy, feel safe and are taught well. Developing ‘The Whole Child’ is one of our core responsibilities and our students are challenged to aim for the highest personal and academic standards. We have high expectations of behaviour and respect across our community and forge excellent relationships with both students and parents.

I am hugely proud to be the Headteacher of Huxlow Science College and to lead the school as we build on recent increases in both student numbers and exam results. It is such a privilege to be entrusted with the lives of the young people in our community, to shape their characters and enable their success.

We look forward to welcoming all prospective students, parents and carers to experience all that is Huxlow in the very near future.

At Huxlow we recognise the important contribution we make to the development of community cohesion within the school and in our local community.

We continue to work hard to maintain and develop the school as a thriving, achieving and harmonious environment which prepares our young people to play a positive role in the school and wider community.

We have strong relationships with a wide number of local bodies including the Local Authority, the Police, feeder primary schools and local sports associations. We work in partnership with them to improve the local environment and make it a good place to live and learn. We provide many opportunities for our students to develop self-esteem, confidence and leadership skills and to be positive citizens, helping younger students and taking part in activities that benefit both the school and the local community. This involvement helps to keep them on positive paths and gives skills that they can take into the local community outside of school time.

Our students regularly raise money each year for a wide range of local and national charities. They have supported Cancer Research, Children in Need, Royal British Legion, British Heart Foundation and Guide Dogs for the Blind to name but a few.

We work closely with the Finedon Educational Charity who provide support for the education and development of young people living in Finedon.

Events such as Armistice Day, Remembering Srebrenica, and Holocaust Memorial Day are all commemorated along with other national days and events. We hold an annual Christmas Carol concert at St Peters Church in Irthlingborough which is free to attend and is open to the local community. We also host an annual Senior Citizens Christmas Party for our local community which is well supported and a MacMillan coffee morning.

We are continually looking for projects and community events to support so please get in touch with Mrs K Hughes (Headteacher's PA)
