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.

Dave Cousins, Author, visits Huxlow Science College

Year 7 and 8 students welcomed author, Dave Cousins to Huxlow Science College on Monday 1st April. He spent time talking to the students, answering questions and signing copies of his book, Waiting for Gonzo.Collage 2019 04 02 11 12 53

All students were captivated as he shared stories of his dreams and aspirations growing up, from visions of being an astronaut to goals of being in a band. He spoke of his stubbornness and determination and how that encouraged him and drove him on.

Throughout his talk, his love of writing was evident. Comic books at a young age and songs as he grew older eventually led to him writing a novel in his cold, dusty attic. Ultimately, the message that he left the students with was not to give up. You will find your “thing”, hold onto it and you never know where it will lead you.
