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.

Paul Letch - Headteacher


Action packed London Residential for TENC sixth form

The Ferrers School, Huxlow Science College and Rushden Academy work together to create one post-16 learning community, The East Northamptonshire College (TENC). On Thursday 9th – Friday 10th February 2017, sixth form students from Huxlow joined with other TENC students on the legendary action packed London Residential, which occurs each year in February.

“The students gained an enormous amount over the course of the busy two days, returning home completely exhausted!”

Mrs E Brooker, Director of The East Northamptonshire College (TENC)

Students stayed overnight in a hotel in central London and then over the two days students opted from a vast range of activities including: the Science Museum, visiting art galleries, London Zoo, the Imperial War Museum, Madame Tussauds, or sitting in on a live case at the Central Criminal Courts. In the evening students either went to see a spectacular West End show, choosing from Wicked, Matilda or Kinky Boots, or they went flood-lit outdoor ice skating at Canary Wharf. Friday afternoon allowed the students some free time in Oxford Street and Covent Garden.

"The London trip was a great way for schools to interact with each other while doing fun activities."

G Buswell, Year 12

"I think the London Residential trip was a great experience for all pupils to interact. Students were given the opportunity to experience central London with friends and enjoy the hectic atmosphere. From shopping at Westfield to seeing giraffes lick poles at London Zoo, being in London was an amazing experience and very worthwhile."

J Ible, Year 12
