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.

Year 11 - 12 Induction Week

Sixth Form Induction Week saw Yr 11 students from across our three schools finding out more about The East Northamptonshire College (TENC) and the courses they have opted for next year. The aim of the week is to give students a genuine experience of life in the sixth form with lessons at all the partner schools in TENC.

The week started with the TENC Induction Residential, staying in fabulous student rooms at Kent University in Canterbury where we all got a real taste of life on campus. Students were treated as undergraduates and experienced all aspects of the university facilities including having an evening meal in the student restaurant before heading off for bowling and laser maze in Canterbury. The next day a student size breakfast was followed by time exploring the campus before heading into Canterbury city centre for a spot of shopping and site seeing. The sun shone, the campus amazing and all the students had a fabulous undergraduate experience.

On Wednesday morning students were welcomed by Heads of Sixth Mr Chapman, Mrs Holmes and Mrs Prince , and introduced to the TENC sixth form ethos and expectations, including the new dress code. Once briefed on their timetables and how not to miss the bus, they set off for their lessons across the three sites safe in the knowledge they will already be getting their first pieces of transition homework for the summer holiday.
