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’s shoebox gifts are sorted and shipped

Year 7 and the Sixth Form would like to thank the whole Huxlow community for their generous donations towards shoebox gifts this year. They have now packed up 42 boxes for Operation Christmas Child, to be sent to communities in need across Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

The shoeboxes were wrapped in colourful Christmas paper by a team of Huxlow sixth form students and then packed with a selection of toys, school supplies, hygiene items, accessories and sweets by Year 7. For each box they selected gifts appropriate for a boy or girl within a particular age range, and then also included a sheet to tell the recipient all about themselves.

“I was excited to get involved because I wanted to help people who don’t have as much as us” said Alice, Year 7. “I enjoyed packing the boxes – it was fun and got us working together as a team” added Lexie, also Year 7.

Representatives of Huxlow Sixth Form delivered the wonderful collection of shoebox gifts to St Peter’s Church in Irthlingborough on Monday 15th November 2016. From there, they will be taken to a sorting centre where the boxes will be checked and sealed before being sent on to the destination country in time for Christmas. We will find out in the New Year where our boxes have gone.
