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.

The Buzzed - a play about drugs and mental health

Students from Northampton College visited Huxlow Science College to perform their powerful and thought provoking play, The Buzzed.  The play follows the story of 13 year old Charlotte who meets her older self at 17 and 22 years of age.  The story follows her teenage years, drinking and smoking which eventually leads to illegal drugs.

It is part of a county wide tour of 20 secondary schools in Northamptonshire, and is being delivered in conjunction with the TALK OUT LOUD mental health programme. which is jointly funded by Northamptonshire County Council and the local NHS.   

The play is used as a way to encourage young people to talk about mental health and the effect that drugs and alcohol can have on us and those around us.

One student said "It was amazing, so good, that I want to see it again!"
