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.

Jaguar Landrover factory visit

Forty Year 8 students went to the Jaguar/Landrover Factory with the DT department on Tuesday 22 May to experience a day learning about Just In Time, Mass and Batch production. They got the opportunity to go onto the factory production line to see cars like the F type and the XE being manufactured. They then took part in a group activity where they had to produce as many identical Lego cars as possible and put their understanding of Just In Time production into action. This was a perfect experience for students to understand about different careers in engineering and to understand the theory topics for their DT exam.
