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.

"Future Teachers" workshop for sixth form

It was fabulous to have so many Yr 12 and Yr 13 students from Ferrers Rushden and Huxlow attend our TENC training workshop, held on the morning of Weds 5th December at The Ferrers School. The workshop was designed to acknowledge the huge contribution our sixth form students can make to the lives of lower school students when they help out in lessons,provide 1-1 support, listen to pupils read or act as sports leaders. The workshop explored how they can get the most out of the experience, the skills required, but also looked at the all important issue of safeguarding.

It was an action packed session, designed to help all those volunteering with younger students but also looking at how the sixth formers can build up their evidence based portfolios should they wish to enter the teaching profession in a few years time. It was so rewarding to have such a large number attending because they want to put something back into their school community.
