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.

World Mental Health Day 2019

Staff at Huxlow Science College enjoyed breakfast together to support World Mental Health Day, on Thursday 10th October 2019. 

The breakfast was organised by the “Time to Change Champions”, members of staff who work together to change the way people think and act about mental health.  The theme of the event was “Ask Twice.”  Time to Change are leading this campaign by encouraging people to “Ask Twice” if they suspect that someone is struggling with their mental health.  Asking again, with interest can help someone to open up for the first time.  It was a great opportunity for staff to spend time talking to each other in a relaxed environment.

Huxlow Science College are focused on changing attitudes around mental health.  We signed up to the Time to Change Employer Pledge last year.  By signing this pledge, we are demonstrating our commitment to ensuring that all employees feel supported enough to talk about their experiences.  We have made a number of adjustments to the workplace, including adding a new “Wellbeing Area” to the staff room.  The area has been designed with peace and tranquillity in mind and is somewhere for staff to go to rest and recharge.

A huge thank you to Andrew, one of our School Governors and Sainsburys for their donation of mince pies.  Their donation was so generous that we were able to share some with our local nursing home, Highmead House for the residents to enjoy.
