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.

Register & be a Lifesaver Education Programme - ASSET

adrian ballon1

ASSET is the Adrian Sudbury Schools’ Education Trust. Adrian Sudbury was a 27-year-old journalist who died of Leukaemia. Adrian’s dying wish was that every 16-18 year-old could be taught the facts about blood, stem cell and organ donation.

Asset delivers the Register & Be a Lifesaver Education Programme (R&BE) to 6th Form Students in the East Midlands. It delivers the programme in 135 schools and colleges.

Louise & Mick Wilson from Adrian Sudbury Schools Education Trust visited Huxlow Science College on Thursday 25th April and gave an informative and engaging talk to our Y12s and Y13s about blood, stem cell and organ donation. Most students were not aware that were already old enough eligible to join the registers.

The detailed talk based on the speakers own experiences changed the views of many of the students. Louise said that “our students were a delight to talk to, attentive and respectful.”

Since 2009, ASSET have delivered over 4,000 presentations, resulting in over 14,000 registered blood donors, 24,000 new recruits to Anthony Nolan’s stem cell register, and 7,000 new potential organ donors.

"We grow to meet the needs of our wider community who trust and value the school"
