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.

College Council at the Youth in East Northants Conference 2016

On Wednesday 9th November 2016, Huxlow’s College Council went on a trip to the Pemberton Centre in Rushden for the annual Youth in East Northants (YEN) Conference.

The students had the opportunity to take a look at some important organisations who work in our community including Service Six, the NHS Ambulance Service, the Police, Voice and East Northamptonshire District Council. Abigail (Year 8) said “Voice told us all about their work and I enjoyed finding out how they help local children”; Voice support victims and witnesses of crime and is free, impartial and available to everyone, whether a crime has been reported to police or not. “I enjoyed talking to the Police because their work in our community is very interesting” added Luke (Year 8).

This year’s focus for the conference was Healthy Relationships, looking at what makes relationships healthy or unhealthy and how you can make changes in relationships. Students were put into groups with their peers from different schools from all over the district, which meant that everybody left with new friends. The team members were each assigned roles such as financial adviser, researcher, team leader, executive or designer. They had to work together to design a product, app or website to promote healthy relationships, with a hypothetical £2000 budget for development.

“Overall, it was a very good day and we all enjoyed it” said Luke (Year 8). “The activities we have been doing today will all be very helpful to us in the future” added Abigail (Year 8).
