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.

Expectations

At Huxlow we have the highest expectations of student attitudes to learning. We feel an important factor is looking the part, and from next term students will be expected to return in full uniform as per our policy.

Students will be allowed to wear their Huxlow Hoodies if they have purchased one as replacement to their blazer or jumper.

On their non-PE day, all students will need to wear smart black trousers, a white shirt and their House tie. They can wear black shoes which are NOT running shoes. On their PE day, students will be allowed to wear their Huxlow PE kits. If they do not wish to wear their shorts all day, they will be allowed to wear plain (black) track suit bottoms.

We will also expect our students, if they have any, to have removed any fake nails or fake eyelashes by the 12th of April.

Our detention system has been reviewed to give to all students a warning before setting a detention regarding uniform and equipment. It will not be applied to nails and fake eyelashes. For these, a detention will be awarded without any warnings.
