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.

Mr S Gordon

Ofsted Report

Huxlow Science College is delighted to announce that following a two-day inspection, 14th and 15th June 2016, it has been judged to be a GOOD school, where “barriers for pupils have been broken” and “the glass ceiling has been removed”.

The inspectors reported that:

  • Senior Leaders’ uncompromising commitment to raising standards and their high expectations for pupils have led to an impressive improvement in pupils’ outcomes for current year groups.
  • Everyone in the school puts pupils’ well-being at the centre of everything that they do.
  • Teachers provide well for the most able pupils.
  • Leaders support and nurture pupils who have special educational needs or disability.
  • Leaders and teachers are determined that only the best is good enough for pupils at the school. They have introduced an aspirational culture which pupils have embraced.

“This judgement is a recognition of the hard work of the students and staff over the last two years. We are all pleased with the outcome which will act as a springboard to further improvements in the quality of our students’ education.” Steve Gordon, Headteacher.
