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.

Juniors enjoy Maths Masterclasses

For several years, Huxlow Science College have offered more able children from local primary schools a unique opportunity to challenge themselves in Maths through weekly visits to our school to study with specialist Maths teachers.

Irthlingborough Junior School’s Headteacher said: “The Year 5 Maths Masterclass (which 12 of our pupils attended) was a real boost to their self-esteem and confidence. They all enjoyed the challenge and the opportunity to do something none of their class-mates were doing, and to have an insight into what Maths at secondary level might look like. They liked the investigation element and they are now more willing to have a go at explanation and reasoning. One session a week for only a few weeks is too short a time to have real impact academically, but their enjoyment and confidence were definitely boosted. We would very much like the next cohort of Year 5s to have the same opportunity - well worthwhile.”
