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 help to “Stamp Out Stigma”

Northamptonshire’s annual Mental Health Awareness Day took place on Friday 9th February 2018, and Huxlow Science College students showed their support through a range of activities throughout the week.

Over the past few months, a small group of Huxlow students have been working with their peers from across the county to produce a guide for teachers and parents/carers called “All I Ask”.

The group were distributing wristbands and spreading the word to students and staff across the College in the run-up to Mental Health Awareness Day, when schools across the county join together to show their support for the campaign to “Stamp Out Stigma”. The day provides a great opportunity to raise awareness of mental health stigma to young people in lots of interesting, fun and inclusive way, culminating in a balloon release at midday (above and below).

The Northamptonshire Mental Health Stigma Programme is driven by young people to:

  • Help spread the message that ‘mental health is everybody’s business.
  • Increase awareness of mental health needs, draw attention to the stigma and discrimination experienced by young people with mental health needs and challenge the negative perceptions of mental health needs
  • Raise awareness amongst young people about mental health issues, stigma and where they can access help and support
  • Encourage young people to take responsibility for tackling mental health stigma
  • Work with young people to develop services that are accessible and in settings that young people are comfortable in.
