Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

My philosophy is very clear, 'if it is not good enough for my child, then it is not good enough for yours'.

At Huxlow we are committed to developing the whole child, and strive to ensure that every student’s experience is one where they feel Safe, Happy and experience Success.

School years should be the most memorable, and our aim is to offer a wealth of opportunities and experiences to ensure every student leaves enriched and equipped for life beyond Huxlow.

Each member of staff is committed to a common goal which is to ensure ‘every individual is empowered to fulfil their potential’. As well as an excellent academic provision student can expect high quality wellbeing support through out each Key Stage. Our most recent OFSTED recognised that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

We are proud that as a result of their Huxlow experience and personal dedication, students are supported to achieve their goals and go on to a range of top Universities including Oxford and Cambridge, access competitive Apprenticeships and acquire sought after roles in the world of work. Mostly, we are proud that our students go on to be responsible young adults who are an asset to our community.

I am incredibly lucky to lead such a dedicated team of staff at Huxlow and to watch our students flourish, equipped for exciting futures, as a result of staff expertise and guidance.

Huxlow’s Year 11 at the Skills Show 2016

On Thursday 17th November 2016, a group of thirteen Year 11 students from Huxlow Science College were selected to visit the UK’s largest skills and careers event, The Skills Show 2016, at the NEC in Birmingham. Students were able to roam the vast exhibition space in small groups, focusing on the industry zones that most interest them:

  • Hospitality and lifestyle
  • Construction and infrastructure
  • Engineering and technology
  • IT and enterprise
  • Media and creative

There were plenty of opportunities for students to try their hand at job-related skills such as demolition simulation, virtual welding, plastering and animation. “We had a go at making a TV news programme on the BBC stand which was really good fun” said Jack, Year 11.

Many of the industries represented at the Skills Show had a “Showcase” area, where the finest students from Higher Education, Further Education and Apprenticeships across the UK were able to display their best work in fields as diverse as mobile robotics, floristry and cabinet making.

The unique skills competitions were a real inspiration to Huxlow students, who were able to watch students just a few years older than themselves representing their regions in the national finals of the WorldSkills UK Competitions. A huge range of industries were on display in the Competitions from media make-up to landscape gardening.

In addition, there were opportunities for students to get expert one-to-one careers advice, browse real opportunities that they could apply for and speak to employers and educators about their next steps. There were also a huge range of talks and interactive workshops taking place throughout the day.

“Of all the careers shows I’ve taken students to, this one is the biggest, and it’s great for our Huxlow students as there’s something to inspire each and every one of them”
