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.

Huxlow Rocks!! Creative community art project launched

Rocks 17 1000x600px 

Huxlow Rocks is a fun, creative, community art project bringing a little magic and mystery to our local community. Huxlow students have been decorating rocks and on the reverse they have written "Facebook Huxlow Rocks! Hide me or keep me! Please upload a photo". The painted rocks will be hidden around our local town and villages. Those who are lucky enough to find one are asked to post a picture of it to the Facebook group. The whole community are invited to join in and get creative making their own or posting their rock pictures to the online group.

Inspired by “Norfolk Rocks”, a community group on Facebook with 40,000 participants, and similar groups nationwide, Mrs E Wright, Head of Art at Huxlow Science College started up “Huxlow Rocks” in September 2017. All Year 7 students were invited to take part, as well as younger students from local primary schools who visited for Open Evening in October. A group has been set up on Facebook called “Huxlow Rocks” which is the hub of the project.

With almost 100 rocks ready to go, the project was officially launched on Monday 20 November 2017. Mrs Wright and some of the students involved were interviewed on BBC Radio Northampton and for the Northants Telegraph. They then took their rocks out into the community, ready to be found!

And now it’s over to you! Anyone and everyone is welcome to take part in this wonderful community project. Please decorate your own rock; something abstract, some text or really show off those professional art skills! Anything that will brighten somebody’s day! On the reverse, please write "Facebook Huxlow Rocks! Hide me or keep me! Please upload a photo". Then join the group and see if you can spot your rock, or upload a photo if you find somebody else’s.
