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.

Link Schools

Our aim is to work with schools and organisations to ensure everyone is ambitious and welcomes the challenge of being the best they can. Collaboration, whether formally or informally, can help to raise outcomes for students and generate efficiencies both in resources and costs.

Benefits of collaborative working can include;

  • sharing best practice and expertise
  • offering diverse and challenging opportunities
  • offering development opportunities for staff
  • non duplication of resources
  • joint procurement to enable efficiency savings.

We currently work closely with our feeder schools (The Irthlingborough and Finedon Learning Trust) and other local secondary schools. We are members of The East Northamptonshire College which is a joint sixth form partnership with The Ferrers School and Rushden Academy to provide a comprehensive and successful sixth form provision.

If you are interested in working with us please contact Mrs K Hughes (Headteacher's PA)
