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.

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.
