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 12 "Blaze a Trail" at the National Apprenticeship Show 2019

The 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week took place from Monday 4th March to Friday 8th March. It is put together by the National Apprenticeship Service. It is designed to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact that they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.


The theme of the week was “Blaze a Trail.” As in previous years, there were a range of activities and events hosted across the country. The aim of the events being to change the perception of apprenticeships and to encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to take up an apprenticeship.


As part of National Apprenticeship Week, Year 12 students spent a day at the National Apprenticeship Show which took place at the Central Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes. The event was designed to bring together employers, colleges and providers. Students were able to learn about higher and degree apprenticeships in a fun and interactive way.


It was one of the largest events of the week and many large companies were present including the NHS, Thames Valley Police and AstraZeneca. Students were able to speak to staff who explained how the application process works. It was a great way for employers and providers to show the opportunities that are available.


Apprenticeships are an increasingly popular alternative to the traditional university route of gaining a degree. Apprentices work for the companies whilst studying for a foundation or a bachelor’s degree. It allows students the opportunity to work alongside experienced staff and gain skills whilst earning a wage.
