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.

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.
