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.

We have a long tradition of success with our Sixth Form Consortium; working together with The Ferrers and Rushden Academy in offering a unique post-16 learning community and the broadest post-16 curriculum in Northamptonshire.  2018 saw record numbers going to University and the largest ever Sixth Form enrolment.

Drama is a popular subject at KS3 and KS4 and benefited from a brand new, state of the art Drama and Dance facility in September 2019.  Our students enjoy Drama and are keen to participate. 2018 saw our best ever drama results with a 100% B-Tech pass rate and 72% of our students achieved a level 2.

Engage and progress in a variety of extra-curricular activities

Have opportunities for promotion (in a relatively small College new opportunities for leadership and personal development frequently arise)
