Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

My philosophy is very clear, 'if it is not good enough for my child, then it is not good enough for yours'.

At Huxlow we are committed to developing the whole child, and strive to ensure that every student’s experience is one where they feel Safe, Happy and experience Success.

School years should be the most memorable, and our aim is to offer a wealth of opportunities and experiences to ensure every student leaves enriched and equipped for life beyond Huxlow.

Each member of staff is committed to a common goal which is to ensure ‘every individual is empowered to fulfil their potential’. As well as an excellent academic provision student can expect high quality wellbeing support through out each Key Stage. Our most recent OFSTED recognised that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

We are proud that as a result of their Huxlow experience and personal dedication, students are supported to achieve their goals and go on to a range of top Universities including Oxford and Cambridge, access competitive Apprenticeships and acquire sought after roles in the world of work. Mostly, we are proud that our students go on to be responsible young adults who are an asset to our community.

I am incredibly lucky to lead such a dedicated team of staff at Huxlow and to watch our students flourish, equipped for exciting futures, as a result of staff expertise and guidance.

TENC visit Pembroke College

TENC is very proud of its number of applications to Oxford and Cambridge universities and do a lot to prepare our students for the process. On Tuesday 3rd March , a group of Year 12 students from Ferrers, Huxlow and Rushden spent a most enjoyable and informative day at Pembroke College, Cambridge University. The students were a credit their schools.

The day was very much focused on the Oxbridge Application Process, and following a really helpful talk on the university itself and how to apply, they were given the opportunity to ask questions of current students at Pembroke. Our group had a tour of the beautiful college buildings and were treated to lunch in the most impressive dining hall alongside other students and university lecturers. The afternoon sessions explored the application process further and students actually met and were given advice by the Pembroke Admissions Tutor. They were encouraged to think about the importance of their UCAS personal statements and particularly to focus on the “super curriculum” the additional reading and research they need to carry out in connection with the subject they want to study.

It was an inspiring day and really helped them on their journey to an Oxbridge application.
