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.

Business and Community

The existence of strong links between schools and businesses and our communities is of benefit to all concerned.  Over the years we have established links with our communities and a variety of businesses both locally and further afield.  Many in the local community are keen to get involved in helping to develop and encourage our students as they step out of school and into the world of work. We also encourage our community to contact us with ideas for community development projects our students and staff can complete.

Involvement can include:

  • offering work experience placements with constructive overseeing and feedback for students,
  • participation in mock interviews for our Year 11, 12 and 13 students, helping to prepare them for college, university, apprenticeships and employment.
  • presentations on topics of interest to students, either as a whole year group or within specific curriculum areas.
  • community project ideas our students and staff can complete.
  • supplying materials or loaning equipment for specific projects.
  • supporting events within the school to provide a window into the world of work and an understanding of the realities involved.

Benefits for the community and businesses include:

  • opportunity to pass on their experience and expertise to the younger members of the community.
  • to work directly with young people they may wish to employ.
  • to assist in the development of skills to the benefit of their own businesses.
  • to network and liaise with other business individuals within and beyond the community.
  • the raise the profile of their business at school events and through the donation of items or awards.
  • to build relations with key individuals responsible for the commissioning of on-site work at the school.
  • to view the school facilities available for hire at first-hand.
