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.

“Routed and Ready” workshops

On Wednesday 13 June, Year 8 students from Huxlow Science College engaged in a series of “Routed and Ready” workshops aimed at enhancing their knowledge and understanding of prospective career paths for them in the future. Students actively participated in a range of sessions that allowed them to explore a variety of job sectors and roles, as well as the qualifications required to access these careers. Activities ranged from how students can plan their next steps into their chosen careers to how they can market their skills and qualities to increase their prospects for employment.

Responses from students include:

  • “I think that Year 8 is the perfect time to start these activities because we are very open minded at our age”
  • “I enjoyed the career cards because it gave me lots more options of what I want to do and I found out about new jobs that I would never have found out about”
