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.

Inspirational taster day at Pembroke College, Cambridge for Year 11

On Thursday 4 October 2018, a group of Year 11 students from across the three TENC schools of Ferrers, Huxlow and Rushden were privileged to be invited to a Taster Day at Pembroke College, Cambridge University.

It was a fabulous day, aiming to showcase both Pembroke College and Cambridge as a world class university. As well as presentations on the courses on offer and top tips on the application process, the students were given a tour of the college by second year maths student Josh. Not only were they overwhelmed with just how "normal' he was, but also with the beauty of the college and its wonderful old buildings.

After a memorable lunch in the Great Hall, was an interactive lecture on linguistics, delivered by a PhD student. It gave everyone a real insight into what a Cambridge seminar would be like and our students did us proud - really getting to grips with the academic challenges posed and answering really hard questions with enormous confidence and skill!

The students said:
• "It was such a wonderful experience. I have never been to Cambridge before and it really opened my mind to the options open to me"
• "It was a great day"
• "I really enjoyed the day - it completely changed my perception of Cambridge. It was beautiful"
• "The food was amazing"
