Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

At Huxlow we believe that students who are happy, feel safe and are taught well will enjoy school and as a result be successful.

We are passionate about caring for our students, ensuring that they are all known as individuals. Ofsted June 2016 stated that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

Students are challenged to be as good as they possibly can be and supported to achieve this. Academic success is hugely important to us and we have a rich history of students of all abilities and from a wide variety of backgrounds achieving as well as they could.

However, schools are about far more than academic success and we believe that developing “The Whole Child” is one of our core responsibilities. In order to enjoy a successful adult life it is important that our students develop characteristics such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative, and communication.

I am hugely proud of our school and am happy to extend an invitation to all Parents/ Carers to come and visit us during the school day. Please contact us on enquiries@huxlow.northants.sch.uk and we will arrange a convenient time.

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)
