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.

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.
