A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

My philosophy is very clear, 'if it is not good enough for my child, then it is not good enough for yours'.

At Huxlow we are committed to developing the whole child, and strive to ensure that every student’s experience is one where they feel Safe, Happy and experience Success.

School years should be the most memorable, and our aim is to offer a wealth of opportunities and experiences to ensure every student leaves enriched and equipped for life beyond Huxlow.

Each member of staff is committed to a common goal which is to ensure ‘every individual is empowered to fulfil their potential’. As well as an excellent academic provision student can expect high quality wellbeing support through out each Key Stage. Our most recent OFSTED recognised that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

We are proud that as a result of their Huxlow experience and personal dedication, students are supported to achieve their goals and go on to a range of top Universities including Oxford and Cambridge, access competitive Apprenticeships and acquire sought after roles in the world of work. Mostly, we are proud that our students go on to be responsible young adults who are an asset to our community.

I am incredibly lucky to lead such a dedicated team of staff at Huxlow and to watch our students flourish, equipped for exciting futures, as a result of staff expertise and guidance.

A Level results are the best in Huxlow History

Students at Huxlow Science College are today (August 17th) celebrating one of the best A Level results days in the school’s history.

Today’s results show improvements across the board in the school’s A Level and Level 3 applied qualifications with a 100 % pass rate. Students have done particularly well in the Science and Maths subjects.
An impressive 28% of all examinations taken graded at A* or A grade with 54% graded at B or above. 85% of all examinations were graded C or above.

Head Teacher Steve Gordon said: “This is the best set of A Level results ever seen at Huxlow Science College and it is down to the hard work of both students and staff. We have offered high quality careers advice to ensure that all students have studied courses that are well tailored to their talents and aspirations. This has resulted in excellent results and some prestigious university destinations for our students.
“We have left no stone unturned in terms of teaching and learning and we are really proud of our students and the incredible commitment they have shown to their studies.”

Our top performing student was Zac Tiernan who gained A* grades in Biology and Maths and A grades in Chemistry and Further Maths. It now looks likely that he is off to study Pharmacology at UCL in London. He said: “I worked really hard to get these grades and put in at least 50 hours of revision per subject. I have always loved maths and science subjects and I want to pursue a career in drug development. I want my science career to have a practical application and would really enjoy pioneering new drugs.”

Oliver Applegarth also did amazing well and gained an A* and 3As. He will head to the University of East Anglia to study Biochemistry.
Oliver said: “I was hoping for grades B and above so am really pleased with how I have done. I am all prepared for university and have been doing some private maths tutoring during the holidays to build up some funds to take.”

Our school really did live up to its Science name with many top marks in the sciences. Many students will now study a Science related degree at university. Ervin Bevenyi will be studying Aerospace Engineering at Sheffield Hallam; Paul Byrne gained 2A and 2b grades and will study Computer Science at Birmingham University (which is in the prestigious Russell group); Oliver Le Marquant-Brown is studying Automotive Engineering at Oxford Brookes; Cameron Barber will study Aerospace Systems Engineering; Billy Robinson will study Electrical Engineering at Lincoln University; Jordan-Rhys Linnell with study Chemistry at Leicester Unviersity and Calum Patton will study Software Engineering at Nottingham Trent University.

A number of students have also secured jobs or apprenticeships. 

Jasmin Buxton is now working for a local water management company. Chloe Keech is a Community Banker at Barclays in Northampton and Robert Clarke has won a degree apprenticeship with Balfour Beatty.

Nikita Camps will be studying Sport and Science at Brunel University.

She said: “I’m all ready to go to London and have a job lined up already. I am really thrilled to have got a place where I wanted.”

Friends Preston Williams and Joseph Antonacci are headed to Sheffield Hallam University to study the same subject after gaining identical grades in identical subjects.

India Driscoll and Molly Killeen will both be studying The University of Northampton. India will be studying a Psychology and Law degree and Molly will do Education Studies as the first step on a path towards a career in teaching.
Molly said: “The sixth form has been brilliant and the staff have been really supportive all the way along.”

Head of Sixth Form Jackie Holmes said: “I am really pleased that all the hard work has paid off. The new A levels have come to fruition and I am thrilled that our students have cracking futures ahead of them. It is phenomenal how hard they have worked.”

Amelia Parker will study fashion buying and marketing at De Montfort University; Laurence Wright will read History at Lincoln University and William Brown will read the same subject at the University of East Anglia.

There was particular success in the Maths and Sciences. 100% of students who studied Maths and/or Further Maths gained B or above and 71% of students who studied Chemistry gained a B grade or higher.

The success comes as the school prepares to launch its new Sixth Form Centre in September.
Year 12 and 13 students will have a dedicated area to pursue their studies and ensure the Sixth Form continues to thrive.
