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.

Mr S Gordon

Our joint provision has the most comprehensive choice of subjects in the County, consisting of twenty nine A Levels plus ten BTEC Level 3 courses and four Level 2 post-16 options. We have an excellent tradition of examination success in A level and BTEC courses and year on year our students gain places at top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. However, we believe that being in the sixth form is not just about gaining academic qualifications.

All our students follow a wide-ranging PSHE, Careers, Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and Enrichment programme and all Year 12 students are encouraged to play an active role in the community.

Social activities, residentials, public speaking, peer mentoring, work experience, university visits, theatre trips and sporting competitions are a few examples of the things our students have taken part in this year. Choosing the right place for your post-16 study is an extremely important decision to make and we aim to provide you with a high quality education to suit your needs.

Students who choose to study here will enjoy their time with us, and will feel valued, challenged and supported in their ambition to achieve the best they can.
