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.

Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert

Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert is a free community messaging system facilitated by Northamptonshire Police.

Why should people sign up?

Our communities play a crucial part in helping us prevent and detect crime and anti-social behaviour. Working together, we can make Northamptonshire a safer place to live and work. By signing up to Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert, members will receive messages about crime, witness appeals and general policing activity in their designated area, meaning they can better protect themselves from any issues that may arise. They can also be kept informed about what their local policing team is up to, including public events and meetings they are attending.

What happens when someone signs up?

Signing up to Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert is free, quick and simple. The individual will be given the option of what they want to receive alerts about, and how often. Alerts are then sent by email. It’s simple to use and they will only receive messages about topics that they have pre-selected. Members can change their preferences or stop receiving messages at any time.

What sort of alerts will members receive?

The types of messages received depends on the categories selected. For example, if someone chooses ‘Farm and Rural Watch’ as an area of interest, they will receive information relevant to this area. Members can pick multiple areas of interest, such as business, vehicles, animals and more, as well as different areas of the county that they have an interest in. Alerts are posted directly by Northamptonshire Police and other partner organisations, such as Neighbourhood Watch groups, to keep members informed about what is happening in their area, helping us all to work together to make Northamptonshire safer.
