Humphry Davy School22 Jul 2021Check out all the wonderful things our music department have to offer! If your child is interested in signing up for music lessons with any of our fantastic team get in touch now!
Humphry Davy School9 Jul 2021Our summer production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' was a wonderful success and we have had some lovely feedback from many audience members!
A Shakespeare play performed ‘in the round’ is big change from our usual Christmas Panto but our students embraced the challenge and delighted in the opportunity to take part. Pupils from local primary schools were invited to be our first audience members and, whilst sitting on hay bales and blankets, watched our students perform their version of the bard's comedy with glee.
It was lovely to see our students grow throughout the process of this play and the outcome was a truly wonderful show that was enjoyed by many. In such uncertain times we know that creating this play has been an enriching experience for them all. The dedication, time, effort and talents of our young people really shone through to enable us to bring the show to life, well done everyone involved. We cannot wait to see what you come up with next!
Humphry Davy School9 Jul 2021We have had a wonderful week welcoming Year 6 pupils for their HDS taster days this week. These days are always a great opportunity for the pupils to spend some time in their new school before they start in September. The pupils have taken part in a range of exciting activities including making dream catchers, experiencing our professional kitchens with some monster muffin baking, playing music and even building their own rockets in science! We’ve had so much fun spending time with them and can’t wait for them to join us again for Summer School before starting y7 in September! Welcome to the HDS family!
Humphry Davy School8 Jul 2021HDS remains committed to ensuring our students are equipped with vital lifesaving skills. Each year we provide training for our students. On Monday, our Year 7 cohort started training with the PE staff, it was fantastic to be able to resume our students’ CPR training programme! Well done Year 7 for enthusiastically getting involved!
Humphry Davy School8 Jul 2021At HDS we pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming community and outstanding standard of care and support to ensure all children are safe, happy and successful from the moment they join us. We currently have a range of opportunities to join our ever growing team of staff. For more information about how to apply please visit our website.
Humphry Davy School6 Jul 2021The summer term brings longer days and warmer weather and with that, people have been crying out for a bit of live music, which Humphry Davy School students were more than happy to supply at this year’s Summer Festival. More than 70 students across ten different musical ensembles set up on the school field to deliver a much-needed dose of musical enrichment to a socially distanced audience of parents, staff and fellow students. The massive 50 square meter stage housed each of the school bands, from the ‘New Notes Jazz Band’ to ‘HDS Classical Guitar Ensemble’ and from the ‘Impact Choir’ through to our senior band ‘Band of Fiasco’. Each of our groups showcased all the hours and hard work that had gone on behind the scenes this term. The evening was an absolute delight, well done everyone involved!

Humphry Davy School11 Jun 2021On Thursday 27th May, just before half term, Year 11 students were treated to a final rewards trip down on the beach! Student Aoife told us, “It's been an emotional few day leaving HDS and this surfing trip was an amazing way to finish off our journey. It was fantastically fun to make some final memories with our peers and teachers; with some great nose dives and wipe-outs along the way!” We are so lucky to live where we do and we love making the most of what our beautiful county has to offer! We would like to wish all our Year 11’s the very best of luck with their future and look forward to seeing you all very soon.

They are spending three days at Falmouth University media hub where they are hoping to interview some of the G7 attendees! Good luck, and we look forward to hearing all about it!

Humphry Davy School28 May 2021This term HDS students have been adventuring in our stunning Cornish landscape as part of their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Although the expeditions could not take place in their usual way due to national restrictions, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a valuable (and life- changing) experience for many of our students, and we did not want them to miss out! Check out our video to see how much fun they had!
Humphry Davy School27 May 2021Student activists and ‘Plastic Free HDS’ supporters, Ida and Lily, talk with local MP and the UK Environment Minister, George Eustice, to challenge what he is doing to tackle climate change and his thoughts about the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill. Growing up in Cornwall both our students are extremely passionate about the beautiful environment we all call home. In their fifteen and sixteen years of living they have seen first-hand the devastating effects of climate change and have made it their mission to raise awareness around the issue. A short video has been created on some of the key points of their discussion with Mr Eustice, forming an interesting watch for all, be sure to check it out.
Humphry Davy School25 May 2021We pride ourselves on creating 'a sense of belonging' at Humphry Davy and even as our Year 11 students embark upon the next steps in their educational journey, we are supporting them all of the way. A reminder here to check into Satchel:One every day in June to access a pick and mix menu of post 16 materials connected to careers and to aid preparation for college/apprenticeships etc and to access Mrs Richard's summary of college and apprenticeship opportunities.
