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.

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.”
