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.

Register & be a Lifesaver Education Programme - ASSET

ASSET is the Adrian Sudbury Schools’ Education Trust. Adrian Sudbury was a 27-year-old journalist who died of Leukaemia. Adrian’s dying wish was that every 16-18 year-old could be taught the facts about blood, stem cell and organ donation.

Asset delivers the Register & Be a Lifesaver Education Programme (R&BE) to 6th Form Students in the East Midlands. It delivers the programme in 135 schools and colleges.

Louise & Mick Wilson from Adrian Sudbury Schools Education Trust visited Huxlow Science College on Thursday 25th April and gave an informative and engaging talk to our Y12s and Y13s about blood, stem cell and organ donation. Most students were not aware that were already old enough eligible to join the registers.

The detailed talk based on the speakers own experiences changed the views of many of the students. Louise said that “our students were a delight to talk to, attentive and respectful.”

Since 2009, ASSET have delivered over 4,000 presentations, resulting in over 14,000 registered blood donors, 24,000 new recruits to Anthony Nolan’s stem cell register, and 7,000 new potential organ donors.

"We grow to meet the needs of our wider community who trust and value the school"
