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 12 Futures Week - Monday 17th June - Friday 21st June

Students from all the TENC schools have spent this week thinking about their futures. To start the week and give students a real insight into the world of work, all were given the opportunity of up to three days’ work placement in a relevant and meaningful context. Students found some amazing placements and we look forward to hearing all about their experiences.

On Thursday, we visited the Universities Conference at Bedford University which provided a unique opportunity for them– and anyone supporting them – to explore the wide range of options available after school, all in one setting. Whether they were interested in applying to university or looking at alternative pathways, they all found something that interested them.

The week culminated in the TENC Futures’ Conference where students were treated to an amazing range of speakers from a whole range of different career pathways. What an amazing bunch of inspirational people! Our keynote speaker was Kevin Rogers from Wilson Browne Solicitors. He gave us an insightful look at his experience in studying law and becoming a solicitor, not that it was an easy journey!Futures week 1

We also heard from people who have forged paths into teaching, medicine, sport’s journalism, the Army, business ownership, marketing, and the civil service. All our guests are fresh out of education and they have had really different and exciting routes into their career paths.

We hope our students are equally inspired by the event which illustrates that anything can be achieved when you make a choice to take a chance to change your life.
