Huxlow and TENC

Our Sixth Form is part of The East Northamptonshire College (TENC), which combines the strengths of Huxlow Science College, The Ferrers School and Rushden Community College at post-16 level.

TENC Prospectus

TENC offers a wide range of courses and opportunities to all students in the East Northamptonshire area, with an excellent tradition of examination success in A2, AS, vocational and applied courses.

However, we also believe that being in the Sixth Form is not just about gaining academic qualifications. All our students follow a wide-ranging PSHCE, Careers, General Studies and Enrichment programme and we are proud of our national recognition for post-16 Citizenship, enabling all our Year 12 students to play an active role in the community.

Social activities, residentials, public speaking, peer mentoring, work experience, university visits, theatre trips and sporting competitions are a few examples of the things our students have taken part in this year.
