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.

Student Leadership

Pupils as Learning Partners (PALPs)

Huxlow PALPs support the Senior Leadership Team by running a range of quality assurance exercises. The aim is to provide a student view of teaching and learning at Huxlow to allow us to share good practice and address areas for development. Students receive training each half term to enable them to undertake this role:

  • Term 2: Work Scrutiny
  • Term 3: Lesson Monitoring
  • Term 4: Work Scrutiny (Literacy Focus)
  • Term 5: Learning Walks

Learning Challenge

Focus groups of students meet on Wednesdays with all of their books and the Senior Leadership Team to evaluate aspects of the curriculum and its delivery. We focus on the experience of particular groups of students or target subjects, homework, Literacy or other aspects of teaching and learning. This helps to identify strengths as well as areas for development within the College.
