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.

Business and Community

The existence of strong links between schools and businesses and our communities is of benefit to all concerned.  Over the years we have established links with our communities and a variety of businesses both locally and further afield.  Many in the local community are keen to get involved in helping to develop and encourage our students as they step out of school and into the world of work. We also encourage our community to contact us with ideas for community development projects our students and staff can complete.

Involvement can include:

  • offering work experience placements with constructive overseeing and feedback for students,
  • participation in mock interviews for our Year 11, 12 and 13 students, helping to prepare them for college, university, apprenticeships and employment.
  • presentations on topics of interest to students, either as a whole year group or within specific curriculum areas.
  • community project ideas our students and staff can complete.
  • supplying materials or loaning equipment for specific projects.
  • supporting events within the school to provide a window into the world of work and an understanding of the realities involved.

Benefits for the community and businesses include:

  • opportunity to pass on their experience and expertise to the younger members of the community.
  • to work directly with young people they may wish to employ.
  • to assist in the development of skills to the benefit of their own businesses.
  • to network and liaise with other business individuals within and beyond the community.
  • the raise the profile of their business at school events and through the donation of items or awards.
  • to build relations with key individuals responsible for the commissioning of on-site work at the school.
  • to view the school facilities available for hire at first-hand.
