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.

Huxlow students cast their votes in mock General Election

As part of our Citizenship commitment at Huxlow, a Mock General Election was held on Thursday 8 June. Students heard about some of the key points from each party’s manifesto in assemblies and followed this up with further research during tutor time.

On the day, students and staff cast their votes in a secret ballot in the Library. Members of the sixth form became Polling Officers for the day, supervising the voting process and counting the votes. “We aim to show all our students that voting is fun and accessible, encouraging them to become active citizens” said Mrs J Holmes, Head of Sixth Form.

The outcome of Huxlow’s election was markedly different to that of the General Election with results as follows:

  • Labour: 268 votes, 50% share
  • Green Party: 145 votes, 27% share
  • Conservatives: 110 votes, 20% share
  • Liberal Democrats: 18 votes, 3% share
