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.

Student Support

Pastoral Care
Special Educational Needs

At Huxlow Science College we believe that pastoral support is fundamental to the wellbeing and overall success of each of our students.

Our pastoral system is a key part of our strong Huxlow community where every individual matters. Form tutors know their tutees well and a range of support is available at every stage of their school life. Our house system provides a range of leadership opportunities for students and develops the responsibilities of different ages so they work together for a common goal. These respectful values underpin our College ethos.

At the centre of the College is a team of pastoral staff who are dedicated to ensuring that the students have someone to go to if they have problems or concerns. Experienced staff have a wide range of strategies to support the learning, welfare and behaviour needs of each student.

We are committed to placing Huxlow at the heart of the wider community and believe that a positive relationship between home and College is crucial. We work together to ensure our students reach their full potential.
