Head's Welcome

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.

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
