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.

Induction and Futures Week

We welcomed our prospective Year 12s to their Sixth Form Induction on Wednesday 23rd June.

Students had great fun with the PE department competing in different team-building challenges, including an assault course, culminating in a group tug-of-war on the field! After break, they had an assembly focusing on what to expect in Sixth Form and what work they should be doing now in preparation.

It was great to see so many students. We look forward to seeing you all in September!’

Alongside the induction, the year 12s took part in Futures Week which was an opportunity for them to engage in a mixture of live and virtual work-based activities.

Many of our students took part in work shadowing Monday to Wednesday. Students were able to access a range of different career pathways from working in education, experiencing the day-to-day running of a law firm to shadowing a surgeon.

On Thursday, students were able to access sessions on apprenticeships, the world of work and life at university.

The week culminated on Friday with students participating in a number of employability workshops including one-to-one mock interviews.
