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.

At Huxlow, there is a strong commitment from staff to offer our students an inclusive and enriching educational experience, both within the curriculum and through a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. An exciting array of clubs, activities and trips provide a springboard for developing Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication (LORIC) skills.

Inspiration is achieved through our many day and residential trips. The following highly popular residential trips enrich the educational experiences of many young people year on year:

  • Normandy/ Paris/ Holland - cultural trips
  • Belgium - WW1 Battlefields
  • Austria - ski trip
  • Uganda - International Youth Conference.

Students also have the opportunity to visit places of interest in the UK, including the theatre, university campuses, science conventions and career opportunities. They will also experience visiting speakers, authors and theatre groups during their time at Huxlow.

We are extremely proud of our sporting achievements. Huxlow students repeatedly achieve excellent results at District, County and National level in this competitive arena. Many team and individual sports are run as clubs and activities by our motivated and competitive Physical Education team.
