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.

Huxlow Science College celebrates excellent GCSE results

It’s double celebrations all round at Huxlow Science College today (August 22nd) as Year 11 students achieved some of the best GCSE results in the College’s history. This is hot on the heels of impressive post -16 results last week. Today 53% of students gained 5 GCSE’s including English and Maths at Grade 4 and above (the equivalent to 5 A* - C).

Headteacher, Steve Gordon said : “We are extremely proud of our GCSE students and thrilled that these excellent results reflect the high level of dedication they have shown to their studies. Staff and students have risen to the challenge this year with outstanding commitment. Students have had bespoke revision programmes tailored to their needs to ensure that they entered their exams feeling, calm, confident and well prepared.” He added: “Here at Huxlow, we focus on developing the whole child as well as celebrating academic achievement. We are confident that all of our Year 11’s are prepared to go on and do well in the adult world.”

The Science subjects, Huxlow’s specialism, continue to perform at an outstanding level; the percentage of students achieving Grade 4 (equivalent to C) or higher were 70% in Chemistry, 80% in Physics and 76% in Biology. The Irthlingborough secondary school has posted a particularly good set of results in Maths, French and Sport. An impressive 83% of students gained a Grade 4 (equivalent to a C) or higher in French.

Of particular note, students gained the top grade 9 (higher than A*) in English, Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, French, History and Product Design. BTEC results are excellent this year, with 17 students achieving Distinction or Distinction * in BTEC Sport. A busy year at Huxlow Science College culminated in today’s fantastic outcomes for Year 11.

And it’s set to get even busier in September as the school welcomes its largest Year 7 cohort to date, building on Performing Arts with the stunning, new, “state of the art” facilities. Huxlow’s Sixth Form is also looking forward to greeting record numbers of students, offering them the widest choice of courses in the county.

Given our impressive results, a Good Ofsted rating and the school’s increasing popularity, Huxlow Science College are planning to increase capacity further for September 2020. Year 5 and 6 parents are invited to visit Huxlow and see for themselves at our Open Evening on Wednesday 2nd October 2019 from 6pm.
