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.

Northamptonshire County Schools Challenge 2017: Huxlow prepare for semi-finals

The Northamptonshire County Schools Challenge (NCSC) is an annual competition in which students across the county are asked to develop an enterprising idea which will help other young people who are struggling with a specific social issue. This year’s theme is Drugs and Psychoactive Substances.

All Year 8 students have participated. Each form voted for a winning group to represent them in the Huxlow final, held on Wednesday 24th May 2017. The groups pitched their ideas in a “Dragon’s Den” style to a judging panel and their peers. The entries were of an outstanding quality and were skilfully presented. Congratulations to the winning group, 8LHB, who will also be assisted by the runners-up in refining their presentation over the coming weeks. The group will represent the College at the semi-finals to be held in June, and hopefully progress to the finals as last year’s Huxlow team did.
