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.

LORIC (Life Skills)



As part of our commitment to "developing the whole child" students follow a 25 minute programme each morning with their form tutor.  Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is embedded into LORIC time.   The focus of these daily sessions is to ensure students are well supported as they move through this stage of their development and to enhance Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication skills (LORIC) through a variety of tasks, competitions and House activities.  The LORIC experience includes:

EVERYBODY'S VOICE IS IMPORTANT - Students celebrate diversity and look at the impact of stereotyping and discrimination.  Friendships and other relationships are explored here too.

PROMOTING RESILIENCE - Students are encouraged to have a growth mindset and explore how they learn.  The term empathy is also explored and topics such as bullying are covered.

BEING HEALTHY - This covers a range of topics from drugs and alcohol, health and fitness, nutrition and sex and relationships education. 

CAREERS AND ASPIRATIONS Throughout their time at Huxlow, students will be exposed to a range of opportunities to think about their futures.  Careers education will involve guest speakers, trips and understanding the skills and personal attributes needed beyond Huxlow.

MANAGING MONEY - Personal finance in the modern world is taught here.  Sessions range from opening a bank account to budgeting and problem solving.

MAKING POSITIVE DECISIONS - A range of sessions covering topical issues such as county lines, drug and knife crime, sex and relationships are covered.  Tutors are trained to deliver these sessions in a sensitive fashion.

INTERVENTION/WELLBEINGIn Year 10 and 11 students will have specific sessions for subject revision, exam-ready skills and support sessions to support their mental and physical wellbeing.
