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 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).

  • 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.
