Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

My philosophy is very clear, 'if it is not good enough for my child, then it is not good enough for yours'.

At Huxlow we are committed to developing the whole child, and strive to ensure that every student’s experience is one where they feel Safe, Happy and experience Success.

School years should be the most memorable, and our aim is to offer a wealth of opportunities and experiences to ensure every student leaves enriched and equipped for life beyond Huxlow.

Each member of staff is committed to a common goal which is to ensure ‘every individual is empowered to fulfil their potential’. As well as an excellent academic provision student can expect high quality wellbeing support through out each Key Stage. Our most recent OFSTED recognised that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

We are proud that as a result of their Huxlow experience and personal dedication, students are supported to achieve their goals and go on to a range of top Universities including Oxford and Cambridge, access competitive Apprenticeships and acquire sought after roles in the world of work. Mostly, we are proud that our students go on to be responsible young adults who are an asset to our community.

I am incredibly lucky to lead such a dedicated team of staff at Huxlow and to watch our students flourish, equipped for exciting futures, as a result of staff expertise and guidance.

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.
