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.

Crazy Hats Charity spend time with Y13 students

Huxlow Science College welcomed Glennis Hooper and her colleague to talk to Y13 Health and Social Care students as part of a unit on physiological disorders.

Crazy Hats is a small charity based in Wellingborough. They support all aspects of breast cancer care in Northamptonshire. Crazy Hats was formed 18 years ago when its founder, Glennis Hooper, was diagnosed with breast cancer. They run support groups and have donated monies to better equip and train staff and surgeons at local hospitals.

One of the assignments that the Y13 students are working on, is a care plan for a breast cancer sufferer. Glennis spent time talking through her own experiences of diagnosis and treatment. She also educated the students on the emotional and physical impacts of living with breast cancer.

The visit was a great success and we would like to thank Glennis for their time.
