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.

Happy Cakes - bake some positivity

Design and/or make cakes to keep people positive and bring a smile to their face during this time of social distancing. You can either design one large cake or a range of fairy cakes/cupcakes.

You can draw out your designs on one of the templates attached, remember to be as creative as you can!

Alternatively, if you have the ingredients and permission, get in the kitchen and make and decorate some cakes. These could be enjoyed with the people at home or left on the doorstep of a neighbour to cheer them up (remember to ask permission from your parent/carer first!)

Design NHS shortbread - cut the shapes and decorate!

Please send your designs in to s.earby-martin@huxlow.northants.sch.uk or share to our Facebook and Twitter pages.

We can't wait to see your designs and ideas!
