Huxlow Science College, The Ferrers School and Rushden Academy work together to create a unique post-16 learning community, The East Northamptonshire College (TENC). With a long and excellent tradition of success, TENC offer a wide range of courses and opportunities to all students in the East Northamptonshire area.
Our joint provision has the most comprehensive choice of subjects in the County, consisting of twenty nine A Levels plus ten BTEC additional level 3 courses and four L2 post-sixteen 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.
At Huxlow, each individual student matters. We have established a strong, caring and supportive framework to ensure all achieve their very best. The Sixth Form Pastoral Team at Huxlow are:
- Head of Sixth Form: Mrs J Holmes
- 12VS: Ms V Stanyon
- 12LV: Mr L Venn
- 12AA: Miss A Aufauvre
- 12DA: Mr D Ashurst
- 13RR: Mrs R Runnells
- 13JT: Mr J Tufnail
Together, the Pastoral Team and Assistant Headteachers are responsible for the welfare and progression of students. They deal with any serious disciplinary problems and follow up issues relating to absence, sickness, lateness, dress code and homework.
