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 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.
