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.

Languages

 

Modern foreign languages

Learning a foreign language is empowering. There is no denying that foreign language skills are increasingly important in modern Britain and hugely benefit trade and employment.
Students will need to be ready for the challenges which the future of the UK holds and the demand for linguistic abilities is soaring.

The Modern Foreign Languages department at Huxlow takes pride in ensuring that students are equipped with the tools which will make them stand out. The team of very skilled teachers have a record of sustained high results in the French language at GCSE level and they are committed to secure students’ success.

But learning a language is not only about academic results and job opportunities.
It is also about enjoyment and enriching the cultural capital. The team has developed many strategies to guarantee that students feel confident and keep aiming high whilst discovering the French culture. Opportunities to widen their perspectives and reflect on other cultures as well as their own are repeatedly created. French films, music, artists, food, architecture, lifestyle are part of students’ everyday learning and this has made language teaching at Huxlow quite unique and so successful over the years.
