2018 saw Huxlow beat the national figures for the number of students gaining a grade 4 or above in English and Maths and exceed the national average for achieving a grade 5 in English and Maths. We had the highest number of grade 9s achieved by any school in the area and students at Huxlow made more progress than all other local schools. This has strengthened our position on our journey to becoming an outstanding school.

French is a very popular subject from KS3 to KS4 with a very strong success ethos. The vast majority of students are studying French at KS4 and for the past 7 years, the GCSE results have been outstanding, despite the changes brought to the exam procedures and grading.
The French department has very high expectations which all students acknowledge and value. There is also a drive for cultural awareness and strong subject knowledge in and out of the classroom.

Our vision for the school is to deliver outstanding education to our students, not only in terms of academic success, but by ensuring we develop the “whole child”. In order to enjoy a successful adult life it is important that our students develop characteristics such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative, and communication.
