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.

Trip to the National Museum of Computing

On Monday 11 June, Year 9 Computer Science students from Huxlow Science College had an exciting opportunity to tour the National Museum of Computing, based at Bletchley Park near Milton Keynes.

Highlights of the trip included:

  • seeing Collosus, the worlds first programmable electronic digital computer.
  • finding out about the WITCH computer which is the worlds oldest working digital programmable computer. It was used to teach Computer Science to students at the Wolverhampton and Staffordshire Technical College until 1973!

The National Museum of Computing:

  • aims “to bring to life the history and ongoing development of computing for inspiration, research, learning and enjoyment for the benefit of general and specialist publics of all ages.”
  • “enables visitors to follow the development of computing from the ultra-secret pioneering efforts of the 1940s through the large systems and mainframes of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and the rise of personal computing in the 1980s and beyond.”
