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.

Huxlow students learn how to “Restart a Heart”

Tuesday 16 October 2018 was national “Restart a Heart” Day, organised through the joint effort of the Resuscitation Council (UK) and the British Heart Foundation, who donated free training kits to the schools taking part.

115 Huxlow students were taught how to save a life by Community First Responders from the East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS). They were trained in how to perform CPR on someone in cardiac arrest and how to use a defibrillator. In a life-threatening emergency seconds count and chest compressions keep oxygen flowing around the patient’s body increasing their chance of survival.

Mick Barnett-Connolly, Head of Community Response at EMAS said: “If someone suffers a cardiac arrest their chances of survival increases considerably if it happens in front of someone who starts CPR immediately. We are growing the network of lifesavers in the East Midlands by equipping these students with skills they will remember for life.”
