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.

Huxlow Science College celebrates excellent GCSE results

It’s double celebrations all round at Huxlow Science College today (August 22nd) as Year 11 students achieved some of the best GCSE results in the College’s history. This is hot on the heels of impressive post -16 results last week. Today 53% of students gained 5 GCSE’s including English and Maths at Grade 4 and above (the equivalent to 5 A* - C).

Headteacher, Steve Gordon said : “We are extremely proud of our GCSE students and thrilled that these excellent results reflect the high level of dedication they have shown to their studies. Staff and students have risen to the challenge this year with outstanding commitment. Students have had bespoke revision programmes tailored to their needs to ensure that they entered their exams feeling, calm, confident and well prepared.” He added: “Here at Huxlow, we focus on developing the whole child as well as celebrating academic achievement. We are confident that all of our Year 11’s are prepared to go on and do well in the adult world.”

The Science subjects, Huxlow’s specialism, continue to perform at an outstanding level; the percentage of students achieving Grade 4 (equivalent to C) or higher were 70% in Chemistry, 80% in Physics and 76% in Biology. The Irthlingborough secondary school has posted a particularly good set of results in Maths, French and Sport. An impressive 83% of students gained a Grade 4 (equivalent to a C) or higher in French.

Of particular note, students gained the top grade 9 (higher than A*) in English, Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, French, History and Product Design. BTEC results are excellent this year, with 17 students achieving Distinction or Distinction * in BTEC Sport. A busy year at Huxlow Science College culminated in today’s fantastic outcomes for Year 11.

And it’s set to get even busier in September as the school welcomes its largest Year 7 cohort to date, building on Performing Arts with the stunning, new, “state of the art” facilities. Huxlow’s Sixth Form is also looking forward to greeting record numbers of students, offering them the widest choice of courses in the county.

Given our impressive results, a Good Ofsted rating and the school’s increasing popularity, Huxlow Science College are planning to increase capacity further for September 2020. Year 5 and 6 parents are invited to visit Huxlow and see for themselves at our Open Evening on Wednesday 2nd October 2019 from 6pm.
