Head's Welcome

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.

TENC Mock Interview Week

Last week , Monday 4th November, was TENC Mock Interview Week.  Year 13 students who have applied to Oxford or Cambridge Universities, or medicine, dentistry, veterinary or nursing courses can all expect to be interviewed as part of the university interview process.   

To ensure that TENC students are well prepared for the rigours and challenges of an academic interview, we organize a programme where outside specialists are invited in to carry out mock interviews.  The evening is intense and challenging, and we are hugely grateful to our team of interviewers (Doctors, Dentists, Lawyers and other academics) who gave up their time to help our students in such a professional way.  Although very nervous beforehand, our students were amazing and the interviewing team were very impressed with their performance.

Dr Stovin described our medics as "the best" he'd ever worked with!

We hope that the preparation pays off and they perform really well at their forthcoming interviews.
