Head's Welcome

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.

Arsenal Ladies want Alice for their squad

Year 8 student Alice Russell has been signed up to Arsenal Ladies Youth Development programme.

The Huxlow Science College student, who is the goalkeeper for Rushden and Diamond’s U14 youth team, beat off competition from across the region to be chosen to train at the Premiership team’s training camp based at the University of Hertfordshire.

This is a dream come true for Alice whose ambition is to become a professional footballer.

She has been playing the sport ever since she can remember along with her two older brothers and dad Mark Russell, who is a boys’ youth coach at Northampton Town Football Club.

She said: “I went for trials in August and had to take part in some skills exercises and play a game.

“I then had to wait a couple of weeks for news and then my dad received an email. I was so pleased as I really love the sport and it’s my ambition to make it into the England side.”

As part of the youth development programme Alice is given expert advice on areas such as nutrition, attends weekly training sessions and also has to provide video diaries of skills practice at home. She is also given complimentary tickets to watch Arsenal Ladies games.

Alice, who also plays for the county side, says she really enjoys the goalkeeping position as she likes it that sometimes she can be the hero of the match.

She said: “In one match we had a penalty shoot out against the league leaders.

“It went down to penalties and as I saved a few of them we won the match.”

She added: “I do get nervous in penalty shoot outs but I know that I can stop the goals so I’m confident. My aim in each game is to keep a clean sheet.”

And this season Alice will have her skills further tested as she now has to play games with adult sized goals.

Unfortunately Alice injured her foot at the start of September and is having treatment before she can return to training.
