Head's Welcome

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.

Our joint provision has the most comprehensive choice of subjects in the County, consisting of twenty nine A Levels plus ten BTEC Level 3 courses and four Level 2 post-16 options. We have an excellent tradition of examination success in A level and BTEC courses and year on year our students gain places at top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. However, we believe that being in the sixth form is not just about gaining academic qualifications.

All our students follow a wide-ranging PSHE, Careers, Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and Enrichment programme and all Year 12 students are encouraged to play an active role in the community.

Social activities, residentials, public speaking, peer mentoring, work experience, university visits, theatre trips and sporting competitions are a few examples of the things our students have taken part in this year. Choosing the right place for your post-16 study is an extremely important decision to make and we aim to provide you with a high quality education to suit your needs.

Students who choose to study here will enjoy their time with us, and will feel valued, challenged and supported in their ambition to achieve the best they can.
