Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

My philosophy is very clear, 'if it is not good enough for my child, then it is not good enough for yours'.

At Huxlow we are committed to developing the whole child, and strive to ensure that every student’s experience is one where they feel Safe, Happy and experience Success.

School years should be the most memorable, and our aim is to offer a wealth of opportunities and experiences to ensure every student leaves enriched and equipped for life beyond Huxlow.

Each member of staff is committed to a common goal which is to ensure ‘every individual is empowered to fulfil their potential’. As well as an excellent academic provision student can expect high quality wellbeing support through out each Key Stage. Our most recent OFSTED recognised that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

We are proud that as a result of their Huxlow experience and personal dedication, students are supported to achieve their goals and go on to a range of top Universities including Oxford and Cambridge, access competitive Apprenticeships and acquire sought after roles in the world of work. Mostly, we are proud that our students go on to be responsible young adults who are an asset to our community.

I am incredibly lucky to lead such a dedicated team of staff at Huxlow and to watch our students flourish, equipped for exciting futures, as a result of staff expertise and guidance.

Lateral Flow Testing

To safely roll out the Asymptomatic Testing Programme we will be staggering the return of students in the week commencing 8th March 2021. Remote Learning will continue for all year groups until they are back in school and it is expected that all students access these lessons.

All consenting students will have three lateral flow tests on their return to school. There must be 3-5 days between each test.

Exam year groups have been prioritised in line with government guidelines.

Home Testing

Once students have been tested three times in school, they will be issued with tests to take at home. Students and staff will be expected to complete two home tests per week every week. Full instructions will be provided in due course. This will considerably reduce the burden on staff in school and will ensure students and staff are tested before they come on site.

Sixth Form Plans

Students across all three TENC schools ae being offered Lateral Flow Tests in their home schools on Friday 5th March to enable them to attend lessons as per their timetables from Monday 8th March. Students will not be permitted to go to Rushden Academy or The Ferrers School if they intend to have a test but did not have it on Friday 5th March. These students should attend Huxlow where they will need to access lessons remotely.

Consent Forms

Lateral Flow Tests are not compulsory, and students will not be prevented from accessing their education if consent has not been given. However, we strongly advise that you give consent for these students to access this programme. It is an additional layer of protection to enable us to keep staff, students, and our community safe and to keep the school open for learning. Lateral Flow Tests are a critical part of supporting the national efforts to control COVID-19. The tests have been successfully run at Huxlow with the critical worker provision for the past month and students now take them in their stride. There is a supportive team of staff on hand to reassure and guide students through the process. Staff on site have also been tested twice every week. 

Students in the Sixth Form can provide their own consent.

Take a look at the video here for more information on testing in school.


If a child receives a positive result, the parents/carers will be notified immediately.   If you do not receive a message, then the result of the test is negative.
