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.

Huxlow students thank local business 'Higgins' for donation of wood to the DT Department

Huxlow Science College DT department have recently run a new project for Year 8 students to design and make a bee and bug house. This project not only teaches them a variety of practical skills, but is also a project that students want to take home and use. Even though this project is excellent, it is expensive as high quality wood is needed for it to be durable outside. Rather than redesigning the project using poor quality wood, our DT Technician Mr Thorley made contact with the builders' merchants ‘Higgins’, based in Irthlingborough, to ask for a donation of materials for the project to be run for the whole of Year 8. They donated over £100 worth of wood specifically to be used for Year 8 students which will dramatically improve the outcomes produced by students.

Miss Campbell and Mr Tufnail took eleven students down to Higgins to hand over cakes and cards they had made to thank them. They also had the chance to show them their work and to explain how they made them. Hopefully the department can make more links with local businesses in the future to enable students to create even better and more challenging projects.
