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.

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.
