At HDS we feel it is important to celebrate the amazing achievements of our students. Whether it be from a piece of work they have created or their level of engagement, we would like to continue to recognise the effort, excellence, creativity and progress being made by not only those students that are remote learning but also those who are continuing their studies in school.

We would love to see which birds visit you this week.

Humphry Davy School17 Dec 2020Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you have a wonderful break and we look forward to seeing all your smiling faces on Monday 4th January! Stay safe.
Humphry Davy School17 Dec 2020HDS is well known for always putting on fantastic festive performances for friends and family. This year, being unable to perform in the usual way, our musical students were still keen to spread some festive cheer to everyone this Christmas. With their fantastic ‘lockdown’ videos in mind they knew that, with the help of their music teachers, they would be able to put together a selection of musical ensembles to get everyone into the Christmas spirit. How amazing are these two videos from our brilliant music scholars and the Band of Fiasco?! Well done everyone, you have blown us away with your talents yet again.
Humphry Davy School17 Dec 2020Our music scholars cover 'In the Bleak Midwinter'.
Humphry Davy School17 Dec 2020On Friday 11th December, Year 7 students gathered on our astro pitch to complete a 2.5K run to show their support for this year’s ‘Santas on the Run – Goes Freestyle!’ in order to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW). The charity’s festive fundraiser usually sees hundreds of Santas running around Eden to raise vital funds. This year, due to the pandemic, the event took place virtually. Over the weekend, supporters were encouraged to choose their own route, distance and festive attire making ‘Santas on the Run - Goes Freestyle’ something everyone could get involved in. The HDS community raised an incredible £1180 through the donations and sponsorship money collected! Thank you everyone for your generosity, the hospice holds a special place in the hearts of all HDS staff and it was brilliant to see how many of our students got involved.
Humphry Davy School9 Dec 2020Our amazing music students have been working very hard all day creating their very own music video! We can’t wait to hear the final outcome. Keep your eyes peeled for this fabulous festive treat!
Humphry Davy School4 Dec 2020We’re getting festive! HDS is currently taking part in the Penzance Christmas Window Competition. This year’s theme is ‘Christmas Songs’ so, during tutor time last Friday, our Year 7 students were challenged with producing a drawing of one of the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’.
The drawings were then transformed into festive decorations which have been creatively displayed for all to see! Our window is in Steckfensters (on Chapel Street) and is certainly shining bright. Well done Year 7 for your fantastic creations, you have such an imagination and we loved working with drawings!
Don’t forget to vote for our school to win by scanning the QR code or visiting https://lovepenzance.co.uk/christmas-window-comp/
