Huxlow Science College is delighted to announce that following a two-day inspection, 14th and 15th June 2016, it has been judged to be a GOOD school, where “barriers for pupils have been broken” and “the glass ceiling has been removed”.

The inspectors reported that:

  • Senior Leaders’ uncompromising commitment to raising standards and their high expectations for pupils have led to an impressive improvement in pupils’ outcomes for current year groups.
  • Everyone in the school puts pupils’ well-being at the centre of everything that they do.
  • Teachers provide well for the most able pupils.
  • Leaders support and nurture pupils who have special educational needs or disability.
  • Leaders and teachers are determined that only the best is good enough for pupils at the school. They have introduced an aspirational culture which pupils have embraced.

“This judgement is a recognition of the hard work of the students and staff over the last two years. We are all pleased with the outcome which will act as a springboard to further improvements in the quality of our students’ education.” Steve Gordon Headteacher.
