Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

Welcome to Huxlow Science College

At Huxlow Science College we believe that school days are precious and form the foundations for our students’ future lives. We have a determination to ensure that our students are given the best possible opportunities to succeed both academically and as young people who are an asset to the communities in which they live. Our community is rightly very proud of our school, our students and their successes. We have a rich history of students of all abilities and backgrounds fulfilling their potential in all areas of their education and they are supported and challenged daily to gain the skills, confidence and qualifications they will need to be successful in an ever-changing world.

We pride ourselves on the levels of support and guidance we offer our students and place students and their needs at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to ensure students are happy, feel safe and are taught well. Developing ‘The Whole Child’ is one of our core responsibilities and our students are challenged to aim for the highest personal and academic standards. We have high expectations of behaviour and respect across our community and forge excellent relationships with both students and parents.

I am hugely proud to be the Headteacher of Huxlow Science College and to lead the school as we build on recent increases in both student numbers and exam results. It is such a privilege to be entrusted with the lives of the young people in our community, to shape their characters and enable their success.

We look forward to welcoming all prospective students, parents and carers to experience all that is Huxlow in the very near future.

A new mini bus for The East Northamptonshire College

IMG 1067 2

The delivery of our 6th form consortium (The East Northamptonshire College) across three schools (Ferrers, Huxlow and Rushden) was severely affected by the breakdown of our old minibus which was 10 years old and meant we were unable to transport students effectively for them to access their studies.

Support from the Finedon Educational Charity together with donations from the 3 schools (Ferrers, Rushden and Huxlow) has enabled the purchase of a new minibus. This has made a huge improvement to students outcomes and has enabled students to access not only their studies but wider developmental activities such as residentials, public speaking, peer mentoring, work experience, university visits and sporting competitions.

A massive than you to the Finedon Education Charity and Ferrers, Huxlow and Rushden academy schools.
