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.

Inspirational Year 9 & 10 visit to the Caterpillar Innovation Centre

The Caterpillar Innovation Centre in Leicester invited a group of interested Year 9 and 10 students to attend an event based around apprenticeships and careers in engineering:

We had a fun filled morning doing a variety of activities. After an introduction to what life is like studying an apprenticeship with Caterpillar, we had a guided tour around the production warehouse. We looked at all aspects of producing backhoes and diggers that cost £60,000, made by the 1,300 employees on site.

Then we had engineering challenges including assembling a brake pedal with functioning electrics. This was in competition with each other.

Finally we were allowed in the visitor centre where we got to take selfies on the huge machinery. This was a great event, very inspirational for the students (and staff!)
